Awesome write up! Just picked up my k5 a few days ago and on the 15 minute road test i went on before i put the money down, it didnt do it (i am sure the old owner would have known about this and failed to inform me or attempt to get it sorted). Did it today, take off from the lights and the worst, abrupt shudder/disengagement of power. Pulled the clutch in and tried again and it took off fine. As the ride went on it did it several more times and everytime i would have to pull the clutch lever in and start again. I would of looked like a complete noob who got the wobbles on take off... I have got the parts on order and will be doing this mod asap!
