Re: handling a 3D
How does it handle?Well the Bimota stands for the epitome of Italian design and if it ain't good you won't find it on a Bimota. I haven't driven one but have read reports of how the geometry does not allow the front end to dive unnecessarily when cornering or braking. It continues to take the shocks (wherever necessary) but no undue diving. This should translate to better control and improved confidence when riding at higher speeds. That taut feel is something we could all use.,,,

Either or a combination of both. Suspension set up, tyre pressure, wrong tyre size or type, style of riding???
Check your manual for suspension set up details and tyre pressures. Check out your steering head is tightened correctly. There are no leaks from your fork seals and if all is in order try ridind it differently (and safely) on bends.
If you have just got this bike recently, it could just be that this particular bike doesn't suit your style of riding. I have ridden bikes that don't "feel right" to me but other people have no problem with. Maybe let a friend test ride and see what they say.
There is a specific "fall away" point that the front end must be set to. This is done by setting the tension on the bearings in the steering head. Since your bike is probably still under warranty, I'd take it to a dealer and ask them about this problem. With this said, I've noticed that the Softail series of bikes do tend to be a bit "quicker" in their handling than other Harleys. I've ridden Wide Glides for years and when I test ride a Softail, I can feel the difference. It feels exactly like what you're talking about, it sorta "dives" into a corner.
Hi, Wojciechnosk for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue. For more information about your issue please visit the website below. Good luck and have a nice day.

The settings depend on your weight and style of riding (terrain) . Place your settings in the middle , ride , and adjust them from there. Example: If you can adjust the front forks to ten positions (ten clicks) Set both front forks to 5 clicks. Set the rear shock about halfway or on the middle click. Ride the bike carefully over some whoops and jumps and make adjustments by how it rides. The bike will be easier to control when you are close to the right setting for you. My dirt bike rear shock was set to "0" when i got it. Every time I went over a jump the rear shock would try to throw you over the handle bar.
have you fixed the leak ? if so then you can just pull the handle bars and undo the top cap on the forks you may hear air escaping when you do this but thats ok it shouldn't be there any way adding oil is easy the right amount is the trick (tool required) looks like this available at a local bike shop near you depending on your skill level and what you are doing with the bike the right type and amount of oil in the front forks can dramaticaly affect the bike handeling Good Luck ride safe
I pull in the clutch and when I put it in first gear it either jumps forward and stalls or wants to move forward but doesn't quite stall. After the bike warms up the problem goes away.
I am pretty familiar with clutches in cars and in general (I'm a mechanic) but I just want some opinions. Could it be air in the system that takes a warm up cycle to go away? Or is this a common problem with Monsters?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!The clutch slave can be difficult to bleed. It sounds like you have air in there.
I'd bleed it and zip tie the lever to the grip overnight. That will allow air to return to the master.
Another issue could be sticky plates in the clutch pack. Does the bike get ridden infrequently?,,,
If your motorcycle has a center stand use it for long term storage.
If you're not riding for several weeks and don't have a center stand you may want to consider carefully propping up the bike using blocks. Don't do more harm than good by dropping your bike while attempting to prop it up! If done correctly lifting your motorcycle will alleviate stress on the suspension and tires.
Inflate your tires to the maximum recommended pressure will maintain their shape, since cooling temperatures will make the pressurized air contract. If the ground might potentially freeze, try to keep the tires off the ground using wood blocks.,,,
