from my short experience on my wife's f7.. 1. it's the same, just a bit different, keep your rpms up a bit 2. you're not going to stall... BUT... if you did, the brakes would be the only thing to keep it from rolling. 2a. the clutch is engaged only above 2kish rpms. if you park or are stopped on an incline with the engine off first gear will not hold the bike from rolling.
