CategoryCustomLast UpdatedReviewThis bike has been hard to start when it was hot or at high altitude since I purchased it. My final fix on this was to go out and buy all of the small idle jets because this is what govens starting. I used downhill pinging to judge that the idle jet was too lean as this is with the throttle close, same as during starting. I started with the smallest and worked my way up until the pinging went away. I live at sea level so it will only get more lean with altitude. This worked. There are still times when I flood it and have to use the following technique. Turn off the ignition or hold the kill button. Pull in the compression release. Open the throttle to the stop and hold it. Kick 10 to 15 times. Let go of the compression relase, throttle and kill button. Kick as normal. Another trick I learned was to roll start in 2nd with the compression release held. Get it going, release the clutch, then the compression release after it spins up. Works every time as long as you are not in a low spot.
