The recommended idle speed is  1050 - 1150 RPM  [/color]  :)

Tick-over is the English word used for what y'all colonials refer to as Idle, as in "it's ticking over nicely".

Setting the tick over/idle to 1100rpm should prevent the stalling, but not if you have clutch problems.

It sounds like your clutch is not fully releasing.
This can happen if the plates have been replaced and the stack height was not set correctly.
It can also happen if the slave cylinder is partially seizing or if the oil is too thick.
I've seen this with a friend who used 20W50 in his bike.

1- Never start the bike with it in gear as cold oil will cause drag between the clutch plates and the bike WILL lurch forwards.
2- Always apply the front brake before starting or putting her into 1st gear.
3- Maybe consider using a thinner oil. If you have 10W40 maybe a 5W40 oil will work better, especially if you live in a colder area.
4- Strip, clean, and rebuild the clutch slave cylinder. If it is binding it will not separate the plates sufficiently.

Oh!  Thanks.  Never heard of that before!

Finally got around to my clutch yesterday. When I removed the covers from the reservoir, this is what it looked like:


I used a Phoenix Systems Reverse Brake Bleeder and pushed all new fluid in and also cleaned out the bottom of the reservoir.

I have not taken it out on a ride yet, but will do that tomorrow. I also lubed up the pivots for both brake and clutch and they feel better.

Oil and final drive oil change and tried to fix my fork seal again (MOTION PRO Seal Mate Fork Seal Cleaner) but I think the fork seals need to be replaced.

looks pretty normal, the clutch is used 20x more than the brakes, and the fluid does tend to need a bit of service.. good job.
I'll be doing ALL my fluids this coming spring, with exception of oil and filter, which has only 1k miles on it since last changeout.

wish I had a heated garage....

sick part is, I have a super nice small woodburning stove I used to heat my small house back in the 90's, but as I have 3 bikes, a mower, and a snow blower, along with assorted fuel cans in the double garage... I just can't bring myself to hook up and use that stove.. makes me paranoid...  so the stove sits cold, under the work bench... occupying space.

dammit.
