my 06 is taking more kicks to start...

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone...my 06 is acting up. It used to start 1 or 2 kicks tops cold but now takes like 3-4 and sometimes even 5...i just took it out before and kicked it and on the 2nd kick i kind of heard the engine turn on but then it died...then it fired on the 3rd kick...Also when my bike is hot its taking more kicks also...it always started right up first kick hot with the hot start...now it takes 2-3....i tried starting it hot with the hot start today and it popped/backfired really loud...then it started on the 2nd kick...what could be causing this had starting? i just rebuilt my bike with new oem piston, cam chain and valves etc. is this a jetting issue? maybe i need to check my valve clearances? im not sure but all i know is that its getting annoying...any help would be appreciated... thanks:thumbsup:

Either one of two things. Valves or Carb. My vote is valves. If it is not valves, clean your carb.
