Engine/clutch issue in traffic? Need advice

I'm down in PCB at Thunder Beach and I'm noticing while taking off after setting in traffic and getting the bike hot that the engine is acting like it's wanting to stall. I'm having to ride the clutch and give it more throttle to get going. Not sure what's going on because it only does it after being stuck in traffic.

I figured when I started taking off that both cylinders would fire? Do they take a second to pick up?

try turning your eitms off and see if you like that better. if you want to continue to use the eitms, just give a quick little blip before you give it gas and let out the clutch.

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.

as soon as throttle increases over idle the rear cylinder will pick back up ..

That's what I figured it would do... kinda has me wondering if it isn't something else going on.

Roll your throttle foward and hold it there until the cruise idicater light blinks from green to red. The ignition must be on to do this. Don't matter if the engine is running, or not.

If I have to explain ,you wouldn't under stand anyway.

Well hell, my cruise control indicator is already ready when I turn the bike on. So I guess the function was already turned off?
