AS the subject states. Both my 01' XR650L and my GF's XT225 are very hard to start after sitting for prolonged storing. It can take 20 tries with full choke before the engine shows signs of even wanting to start. The engines are not flooding. Even after a week or two the engine is difficult to start and is worse the longer time between starts. If I start within days between starts there is no problem. Is this normal for others? The Xt225 is slightly more difficult to start but the sparkplug is easier to remove so I just pour a shot of gas in the cylinder.
