Difficuly starting my 03

Recommended Posts

:ride: My 03 has become a real pain to start, getting slightly more difficult each time I ride. When I do get going it runs strong and there are no strange noises. Seems hard finding TDC when kicking. Thinking possibly valve adj. or top end. New coil and plug. Any other ideas? No suggestion will be ignored :cry: Please help TTers. I bought used in May and once I figured the proceedure out it was initially pretty easy to start but has become a pain in the arse. Is a valve adj. difficult? :thumbsup:

check valve adjustment

Yup. Your intakes are toast. You can probably shim it and get about 5-7 more running hours out of it, but youre looking at a valve job after that...
