when cold it starts 1st kick, but idles rough and stalls. I then restart it and it idles rough and stalls. I do this several times and then eventually after 5 or 6 times, it starts and the idle is fine and i wait till it warms up and i am gone. no running issues once warmed up. My starting procedure is as follows: 1) 1/2 choke (full choke it wont start) 2) pull decompression in and kick through maybe 5 times 3) let decompression out and kick through until hits the hard spot 4) pull decompression back in and push just past hard spot 5) bring it back up and kick...and brrrpp it starts but not for long...rough idle sounds like it choking out and stalls. If i give it any throttle before its ready it will immediate stall. so i start over and it fires up and stalls. after a few time all of a sudden it fires up and the idle is perfect and it happily warms up. Do I need to do the flooded start procedure if it hasnt started in a week or so clear the bowl out? will that help maybe? from what i am reading is the jetting maybe off and its flooding? or is it to lean? I have experimented with choke positions and it likes less rather than more. the bike has a stock carb, it was jetted and uncorked by previous owner. since i got it, I have just checked valves, changed oil and spark plug. thanks alot guys!
