Trust ME.......I work for a major airline and I can tell you one thing for sure!
Screwing with me
Lying to me
Pissing and Moaning to me
Trying to BS me
Being an AHOLE to me
Trying to intimidate me
None of these work AT ALL!
If someone tries these tactics with me.......I WILL screw with you!
Whether it is charge you for something that I could have OVERLOOKED ....(excess baggage/overwt bags/etc) If you are nice it WILLL get you a LOT further with me than trying to threaten me (directly or indirectly) If you want to call my boss because I am being strict about the rules........I will guanatee he will stand behind me %100 if you act or i tell him you are a jackass.
I guess my point is dont try the tough guy attitude.
I used to try this thinking I was macho and they would respect me. That is .......until I started workin with the public and saw my reaction to these DIp schmidt tough guys!
NICE WILL GET YOU TWICE AS FAR!

I would meet up with you old timer but my bike is in Action Motorsports shop right now. If I put a new plug in my bike I can start it on the first or second kick, its when I ride it for an hour, put it in the garage, and come back the next day, the plug is shot. I know enough about bikes to know that something terribly wrong is happening.
I'll let you guys know what ACtion Motorsports says.
One more thing, I don't have a bad temper, I could sit in a restauraunt and the waiter could spill hot coffee all over me and I would still leave a tip, you could rear end my truck and I wouldn't care much, but when I buy A new bike that fouls plugs like this thing dose, it's rediculis. All I can do is hope they find something at Action MS.

Why are you doing this?
If I read it correctly, you rev up the engine then hit the kill switch till the engine dies? 426's have pumper carbs, "every time" you twist the throttle running or not you send fuel to the cylinder. When you rev up the engine and hit the kill switch all you are doing is killing the spark and at the same time flooding the cylinder with raw unburned fuel. When doing this your just wetting down the cylinder, piston & sparkplug with fuel and that fuel will lay there till the next time you go to start the engine. When you go to start the engine your pumping in more fuel along with the fuel thats already sitting there.
In the old days that was a comman thing to prime the motor that way but with the new carbs thats the wrong thing to do, your not priming your flooding.
Are your plugs black with soot, or are they wet fouled?

My 14 year old 120 son can start my 400, no problem. If the bike is operating properly, this should be the case.

2 Smokes need oil in the gas to lube the crank & cylinder. So what you were told was correct, when running out of gas you also start running hotter (more air less fuel) plus running out of lube causing a dry cylinder.

#1. I love my 426
#2. Maybe you should buy a honda(teehee)But you will still foul plugs, if it's not jetted right.
#3. Even a $6000 bike needs to be jetted for altitude.
#4. You are obviously VERY inexperienced, maybe a nice little 125 would suit you better.
#5. You need to calm down, go take a bong rip or something!
#6. You sound like a jack-asz
#7. and finally...haha my bike starts on the first kick every time, second kick after a crash. I can even start the thing in flip flops, it's sooo easy.
P.S. Maybe you should look into buying a Quad with electric start. HARDEE HAR HAR

I have started my bike in flip flops, I hate 4 wheelers, no other 2002 426 around here has had to be jetted so why should mine have to be.
