2006 450X. Great bike, but since I have owned for a year, I have never been able to get it to start in less than 5-7 pushes of the magic button. Of course this is pretty rough on the battery life. A typical ride day goes like this...choke on, pump throttle 6-7 times, push button and it fires right up, but it will not stay going. It runs fast for a couple of seconds, then drops way down on idle (even with choke on) then dies. I go through this repeatedly until it finally starts, runs high for a moment then the idle speed drops way down to nearly stalling then it sorta pulls out and goes back to that high idle again...all this while the choke is on. Oh, it is difficult whether Winter or Summer...but a bit harder to start in Winter---maybe 10 of these start cycles. Typically I end up having to kickstart it as the battery drains. And today I just purchased a new battery, and it still requires multiple cycles. I am just curious if this is common or is there something I need to adjust? It came with JD jetting kit, Yoshi exhaust. The air box has not been opened up but when it runs, it is plenty enough power for me. Anyway, tried looking this up before posting but did not find my issue.
