I just bought a 04 SV650. First, it's having trouble starting. I used to have this issue on my 03 SV but that was in Detroit in the fall, I live in LA and its 80 degrees outside. If I give it a little gas while hitting the ignition switch it helps. Then when it idles it sometimes shuts off when its not really warm.

I was just out riding and the engine cut off when I was in like 4th gear. I had just accelerated and rolled off the throttle in prep to brake and it cut, so I just restarted mid flight no problem but still...

The bike idles at start just under or at 1000rpm. I filled the gas tank. The engine oil was recently changed (according to the owner). Bike has just under 16k. Valve clearance was good at 10k, again from owner.

You shouldn't be using throttle when starting the bike. Perhaps your TPS or STV needs to be reset or adjusted.
