In the meantime, how about this start sequence. Get on the bike, key in and on, clutch pulled in, kickstand up, start bike. Get to neutral and put kickstand down while it warms up.
Or.... get in neutral before you shut the bike off at the end of your ride. Unless you are parked on a hill, it should not matter if bike is in neutral during storage.
The guy before me left the bike in gear all the time. When it was time to go he just got on the bike, kickstand up, clutch in and started it. Luckily, here in Tucson our warm up time is about 30-60 seconds thanks to the V being fuel injected. I now do the same thing - for me it is just not liking that monster clunk when you put it in to first from neutral.
Forty years away from 2 wheel fun. Sure is great to be back smelling the roses!!!
