Starter lockout function compromised. After reaching operating temperature and a few miles travelled, the gear **** indicator will show 1,0,2,3,5,5 instead of the correct sequence. As a conseqence I am frequently unable to find 0 when in neutral, resulting in the starter circuit being locked out. This is not a bit funny, if you are pointing uphill! Any help will be appreciated. I guess the mechanism is in the gearbox and probably submerged in oil and I think there might be some fouling happening. I look forward to whatever assitance is available. Ian.

Believe it or not, it is normal for these engines to use about a quart every 2000 even when they are essentially new. Note that I said, "use", not "burn". The combination of higher compression and operating temperatures causes oil to pass through the engine. You might notice your tail pipes have a good coating on the inside. I managed to slow the process by converting to Mobil 1 0W40. I get much better performance and I only use a quart every 3500-4000.
Sounds like the auto choke is sticking on or not working try taking yhe air intake parts ofvthe throttle body and spray inside and out cleaning it as best you can brake abd clutch fluid is the same a good clean could work as its like us gets tyred with old age lol but if that doesent work you will have to get it tuned up somewhere
If it's a carburetor equipped model, this is normal. The engine will not come to full operating temperature in only a few miles and it will idle low. Once the engine reaches full temp, if it still idles too low, there is a screw on the carb at the top right that you set the idle speed with. If your bike is fuel injected, you'll probably have to take it to a shop to have the idle set.
Any engine, when cold, takes at least 3 miles before reaching operating temperature.. After reaching operating temp it still takes a mile or 8(depending on your vehicle) before "over" temperatures are reached. Therefore if needed, a vehicle can be driven several miles without any coolant/water at all before overheating and causing damage, if started from from cold.
