Hi Everyone:
I have 2018 GTS 300 and 2230 miles on it when I cold start the engine starts up and as soon as i touch the throttle it dies. If I start it up A second time is works fine. If I drive it around and stop and start again it works fine only after a cold start does it need the restart. If's in a condo garage and not in the elements. Coolent and motor oil is topped and new battery a couple of weeks ago.

It might sound obvious, but are you twisting the throttle on start-up? Make sure you don't twist the throttle grip until after the engine has started.
