Hard to start 2000 te610 HELP!

Recommended Posts

bike was bought new in 2002. i just got it. It was still on the original tires!

Like new.

it started fairly easily a month ago. ive put about 150 miles on it. now it wont start. clean air filter, oil changed......new plug...carb is getting gas...

carb has been gone thru. found some blocked jets, but everything has been cleaned.

valves are adjusted to .004 int/exh.

i read here about a manual cam tensioner? is it possible the chain stretched?

does anyone have any ideas? :censored:

btw, its the dellorto phm carb. husky mechanic went thru the carb and thought it was fixed.....?????? i need this bike to start easily and reliably

Look at Agitators Threads. How long ago was the carb cleaned? If you rode it and let it sit with gas in the carb, even for a week it can plug jets.

thanks,....i spoke with George at Uptite Racing. he gave me some pointers / tips to try to get it going.

i like the way the bike handles, i just want to be able to start it in a dead engine race......
