Don't forget to leave the throttle alone under any conditions. The above starting drill is for cold start. If engine is at operating temp, use hot start (red button) instead of choke. If you have been running in last 1/2 hour, but not at full operating temp, use no buttons. See, it's simple. But if you crack the throttle, you're on your own. If I follow this procedure, mine starts first kick EVERY TIME. If I don't, forget it.[/QUOTE]
True except on mine after sitting for a week or so I have to give it a quick squirt or two from the throttle. Then I take my hand off the throttle and kick. After not riding it for 5 months (jetski season), I gave it my quick squirt and second kick it fired up. I discovered this when it was BRAND new. Got home from the shop with my new 01 WR426. Brag to my wife about how easy it is to start! 25 kicks later I'm ready to sell it! @#$@#*@@)@, I think! Next day I twist twice, let go of it and kick. Lights right up! No problem since..
