I have a 98 xr 650 that i ride to school everyday. unfortunatley, it has become a real hassle because it wont start when i get out of class (it sits for about 8 hrs). however, in the morning when i come back to get it, it will crank right up. it is not everyday that it happens, but it is getting more and more common. is it a fuel system problem? seems like it happens more when it is hot outside.....i just dont know. if anyone has any suggestions, I would be very grateful. thanks. b.

Do you turn the fuel off when you park it? If not it may be flooding.

Does she crank OK, but fail to catch, or crank slow?

It sounds like the coil defurber could be sticking. That could be really bad. :thumbsup:
