well i just bought an 08 300. loving it by the way. this thing has me a bit irratated. it starts when it wants. it seems to start with one kick when its nice and hot. but other than that i have tried it all. should i swap the carb for the keihin? im sure its a jetting issue. my frustration already cost me a pawl gear, idler gear, and a clutch pack. i just changed those yesterday. whats odd im really careful about the starting now. sometimes i pull the lever out and it feels like the spaw gear isnt coming out. so i just try again and it works. didnt happen in the last hour of riding so maybe whatever it was worked its way out. one more question... i just now saw the artical on indexing the spaw gear on the shaft. i didnt do that. should i take it back apart? when i gently apply pressure to the kicker it grabs at about 20 degrees rotation.
