Hard starting after truck transport?
Posted December 10, 2003 - 07:22 AM
The last time I rode, I hauled the bike on a new receiver hitch mounted bike carrier, and I couldn't start this bike to save my life! I finally did get it going after probably 50-75 kicks, but I was worn out before I even hit the trail.
Is there something about hauling a bike that makes it hard to start? Especially the rocking motion of a hitch carrier? Is the bike getting flooded somehow, or starved for fuel? And before this comes up, yes I do know the proper starting drill and I do have the gas turned off during transport and on during starting!

I guess I will see what happens next time before I worry about it anymore.
