As I have had my BRP for only about 2 weeks I am still learning it´s character. Previously have had some unpleasant starting when cold,(one kick hot always). This morning the procedure went as follows. Gas on,choke 1/4 down(I´m at 3000ft),kill switch off,throttle closed,pull in comp release kick over 10 times,find TDC, this is the change from before,One SLOW kick. She fired and we both smiled. YeeHaa :thumbsup:

Have you uncorked it yet? Uncorking is supposed to make the BRP easier to start, and if ya get a pumper carb, they are supposed to be 1-kick wonders.
