Ok, first off, YES I DO know how to start it using the manual decomp lever. It's usually on in the first or second kick. Today after starting it up and heading down the driveway I shut it off and when I tried to start it up again it wasn't having it. I tried the choke and nothing. I even tried the hot start. after letting it sit for about an hour I tried again. I started on the first kick but I had to keep my hand on the throttle. I adjusted the idle without luck and then it died. This would have been very frustrating on the trail. It's like it's flooded but I've ruled that out. Has this happened to anyone before? and suggestions?
