Impossible to kick start after sitting for a few days..

I have a 08 450, if I start it everyday or two it starts on the first few kicks without a problem, if I let it sit more than a few days it will not start with the kick starter.. I can pull start it by pulling it behind my 4 wheeler. I will pull it at about 15 mph, dump the clutch in second gear and it fires up within 5'.. Once it fires up I can instantly kill it and start it right back up with the kick starter..

Does anyone have any idea what may be causing this?


Sounds like valves need adjusted. No clue why it only occurs after sitting.

Sounds like fuel system to me.
