        What is it you find missing with the stick function on the 150? I actually really like the way it runs. Sometimes the automatic hot start is not my favorite, but otherwise, I'm satisfied.

            Maybe you can do a reset to the factory presets in case the settings got messed with somewhere along the way? I have no idea if that's even possible.
