Default Dragging, throttle noise


2005 M50 rider. Just had it in for 6k service. Not saying it was a result of the service because I'm not mechanical but couple of things recurring since got it back:

1) Drag - Shifting into 2nd, on two occasions the bike dragged for couple seconds then was fine
2) Stall - Stalled twice. Don't think I accidently hit the kill switch
3) Noise - This is common occurence. When I throttle there is a waining type of sound that's hard to describe

Sorry for the novice description but any ideas as to what if anything is wrong would be much appreciated.

Default RE: Dragging, throttle noise

hey, im new here and i noticed this OLD post. although its the same problem i had when i had my bike serviced recently. if you had the whole shabang service as i did (the 7000 mile service), they most likely removed your drive bar and such, plus adjusted things. what they did to me was not retighten the left peg and making it almost impossible to get into second easily. after you get a service, alwasy make sure that the front lef peg is tight man.
