Thank you for responding. I guess I am just a bit impatiant' sometimes the 4 or 5 seconds seems like 30. Why can we just turn the key of our auto and start rite up? My truck is fuel injected and i presume has a fuel pump. I do always allow a bit of warm up so i guess the few seconds are not a big deal, I was just wondering what else is the bike doing when we first turn the ignition? On my other bikes I turn the key and hit the starter and drive away. By the way i have learned a lot on this forum and love this bike. I have an 08 orange and black and had the 06 le white. I have had almost 100 bikes in the last 40 years. Like my dogs and kids I have loved them all, the Hayabusa is one of my all time favorites. Thanks again.
