Hi, I decided to move the gear selector down to better accommodate my foot position on the peg. I did this by rotating the connecting rod, pushing the selector down. Now, when I start the engine in neutral, then clutch and select a gear, the engine stalls. I tried moving the selector rod back to the original position, then rotating the connector on the splined rod on the gearbox to get the same selector position, but the result's the same.

Any ideas what I've done wrong? I guess to remedy this, I need to get it all back to what it was. Until then, any help appreciated.

Maybe you disturbed the side stand switch? Clutch and neutral switch might also be involved.
Check the display shows neutral light and side stand warning when expected.
Let us know how you get on.

Erm... yes well, super-newb error on my part. Left the side stand down when testing selector lever. All is good now. Seems I have tight calves and foot angles down MORE than the previous owner. Always a good idea to get the bike set up for yourself.

Thanks AndyB... pointed me in the right direction

Amazing. We've all been there so don't feel too bad. When I got my first bike I recall spending half an hour trying to figure out why it wouldn't turn over. It ended up being that the kill switch was engaged....
