xt350 starting issues

Recommended Posts

After far to many kicks I care to remember I think I

have cured my starting and running probs.

Basically the old plug cap was showing a resistance of 10000 ohms which I think is way to high so I fitted a new cap and the bike went first kick this morning and ran very sweetly on my journey to work. Im not going to get too excited yet but it shows promise. ;)

Someone gave great advice on startups here before- full choke, 5 twists of the throttle and slowly work the kickstarter til you fell resistance.

I tried it that way and it starts first or second kick everytime

I get everything but I fail to see what 5 twists of the throttle is.supposed to do.

There isnt any form of accelorator pump on these carbs.
