Dont worry all Yamaha's crash into 1st when cold, if your not happy about it put her in gear first then start the bike.

Due to a bike having a wet clutch, the fluid sticks the plates together when cold. Before you start the bike up do the following:

turn ignition on

Pull in clutch

Put into 1st gear

Keeping clutch in rock the bike back and forth un till she rolls freely

Put back into N

Start bike and ride off

It's not just Yamaha's that do it. I had a Kwak GPZ600 that did it.
