cold starting

Recommended Posts

hey guys, my friend has an 05 and it has become impossible to start when its cold. starts fine when hot but in the morning he has had to push start it! any thoughts. valves are in spec, jetting is spot on and there doesn't seem to be any air leaks anywhere. Thought????:bonk:

there has been a few awesome posts on how to start the bike when cold so give searching a shot!

otherwise, the gist of it is as follows:

turn fuel on

pull choke on

twist throttle 3 times

kick

(more then likely the bike won't start)

twist throttle 1-2 times

kick

(should fire to life)

now, you must remember that the best way to kickstart a bike is starting from TDC. be sure to start here when kicking.
