I am having a problem...if it is a problem.
I can't seem to get it started. It takes me forever.
only Starts on the 20 kick cold and when it does can´t idle, goes off.:busted:
this hapens after i have cleaneded the bike under the seat with water and set the valves to factory specs.
What do you recommend doing to get it started ?

Try turning up the idle screw a bit before starting.

Also, some older 600s have a weak coil that can cause hard starting.

Replace your clogged pilot jet before you start tearing the bike apart.

Cold Start:
1. turn idle screw up
2. choke full on
3. open throttle & hold
4. kick through 3-4 times
5. close throttle & leave it closed
6. bring the piston up on compression stroke, push kickstarter 2-3 more
inches.
7. bring kickstarter back up to top and KICK it.
8. move choke lever to 1/2 off, turn off choke after 2-3 minute warm-up.

Hot start:
1. pull in comp release, open throttle and kick through 3-4 times
2. close throttle and kick it the same as if you are cold starting

Once you get the hang of it, you will most likely modify the procedure to your own liking, then it will be 2nd nature.

You sound like you may have done that once or twice!! :thumbsup:

There are three keys to an easy starting 600. The first is a 68 pilot and the second is a stator that works. The third is to be in neutral.

Mine usually starts first or second kick cold or hot. I do not even have a choke in my bike. I had to remove it as it was about to beak off and get sucked in. If it is really cold I lay the bike down to flood (prime) it.

I'm a big boy and I kick it really hard. That helps a lot.
