First off a little about me. started thumper old XR500-kx125-CRF450-250sx-525sx
I know a bit about bikes I can change my own oil "yay!!" check and shim valves and some lower end stuff is about as complicated as I go.
This is my 1st run on a orange 4stroke after my 07 250sx this is a new learning curve. The bike is a 03 525sx. Now i know this bike have been threaded to death as Ive done ALOT of searches. A few people having my problem hard starting I adjusted the way out floats now I can get a cold start in less than 5 kicks but its still picky and hot start goes something like this.
gas off, hot start on, decompression, kick 20 times, VROOM, turn gas on hot start off.
and thats if I'm lucky.
Without getting a JD jet kit which I will if i cant fix it. Heres what I got.
03 ktm 525 5th and 6th added.
FMF powerbomb header power core 4 silencer (if you can call it that)
200 series black box
ride sea level in the san diego dessert. temps 95-60 less than 10% humidity
running 91 pump gas
