    Hey up Crotchey, yeah I'm a member although I've not been on there for a couple of months, it's not a bad site though and has quite a bit of info on the Dual Sports in particular ('cos it's mostly N American members).

    Not sure I can help with you being able to sign up though; I seem to remember it took about a week for me to have my registration acknowledged

    My 450 'Berg got like that. Turns out they are very sensitive to valve clearances (inlet in particular). Once properly set it started first prod of the starter every time. When I sold it there was, again, an issue with cold starting - the new owner phoned to let me know it was (easily) sorted..............the fecking air screw/jet had fallen out

    Might be worth checking

    I'm also on Cafe Husky.
    Don't remember having to wait for admin approval at all but that just might be failing memory!
    Some very helpful stuff on there for anyone modding a Terra.

    KTM RFS motors are the same

    I was always advised to kick start the bike from cold and use the starter only to restart the motor when warm/hot
