Wait until tuesday to start up you're bike again. I honestly think that the cold weather has screwed around with everybody's bikes. Mine did the same stuff. Tuesday will be about 50 high, when will this damn winter go away already :thumbsup:

I had to turn up the idle on mine when I got it, but that's it for now. I'm gonna put at least 5 hours on the bike before I start messing with the intake. Don't do any jetting until you break in the bike and "read" the plug. The jetting may be a little lean, but you might just be throwing some money into the fan if you don't need the jeting for your riding style. Get the fuel screw to help adjust for weather and break her in.

For cold weather the bike needs more choke circuit fuel. try a 75 starter jet in winter and a 72 for spring and fall. :thumbsup:

Do you guys think that I'll have to change the jetting (richen) even if I'm at 4,600 FT above sea level???

Thanks,
Dave

What's the temperature?


Currently in the 60's to 70's.

Summertime gets upwards of 100 but usually hovering in the 90's for the duration of summer months. Spring and Fall taper up and down respectively.

Thanks,
Dave

Considering the elevation and temps I would try 45 pilot and 168 main, slightly richer than stock 42/165. Maybe grayracer can provide more exact calculations, but factory jetting is lean almost everywhere. But I'm no jetting expert.

I live in California and couldn't start mine when it was new. I was the guy at the track with the brand new back who spent half the day kicking it..

All I can say is that once it is broken in, it starts first kick. Get a good couple of hours on it and for some reason it's fine. I have no idea why it doesn't start when it's new but it's super frustrating.

I'm in Albuquerque, NM at 5100 and I'm running at 162 main, 48 pilot, 50 leak jet and fuel screw varies pending temperature. I would say come summer when temps hit he 80's on up you could probably drop to a 160 main and a 45 pilot.I haven't played with the needle at all and my bike is pretty crisp.

The owners manual says when its cold to prime the bike by turning the throttle open 3-4 times. It sounds crazy but it usually works. The 06 is definitely a finicky starter at times. Your cold climate and stock lean jetting are definitely part of the problem but the bike should start. You'll have to learn the drill. I always start mine in the pits before a moto and I am one of the first to start my bike before the moto starts. I've had a few scares but this bike seems to need gas on startup almost like a two stroke. Your dealer should help you figure it out. Also, I agree, dont just start it in the garage to show it offf. Break it in when the weather warms up and I can pretty nearly guarantee you're going like the bike and get used to its starting drill.

4 blips really work.
That's why raising the idle works so good too.
Now my bike starts very easy. It's all about getting to know it.
