    This might just be to do with the oil you are using.

    When cold the plates are sticking together and I bet if you took the cover off then you could probably pull a handful of the plates out in one go due to this.

    With the bike warm the plates will loosen up due to the oil being less viscous (or is it more?)

    I was the same when i bought mine. The fuel injection is a lot less forgiving and stalls very easily compared to a carb till you get used to it.
    Turn the idle up a bit till you get used to it.

    Does the clutch work perfectly at any time during a ride? No dragging and goes into neutral just fine?

    Works fine on the ride. Not too keen to get into neutral though. Ive been speaking to a mate who has the same bike and he doesnt have these issues.
