Strange Starting Problem
Posted March 13, 2009 - 10:07 AM
I have changed the valve clearences, cleaned out the jets and float bowl but am still having the same problem.
Im begining to think its possibly an electrical problem but it has the symtoms of a fuel shortage.
Has anyone had this problem or know what could be causing it?

Check your spark plug. Firstly to see if you're getting any spark. Depending on how old your spark plug is it might pay to replace it anyway, It's a cheap way of eliminating one factor from the equation before digging the multimeter out.
X2, change the plug. I've cured a lot of odd problems that way.

Try checking your primary coil or your spark plug lead/cap to make sure you're getting the correct readings. It's pretty simple and explained well in the manual - you'll just need a multimetre.
