I am having starting trouble that is hit/miss. Bike is basically stock (am at 90hrs)except for Lexx
94db SA, valves adjusted once at 40hrs (they were almost tight-adjusted to a bit loose, and starting did improve..suspect they were tight from factory.) Jetting is mostly stock but for a ZipTy adj. fuel screw, main down one size, and needle dropped one position. I run a rekluse
Core EXP. Live at 4k and ride and race 3k-9k...really. Basically: Bike is a smooth rocket and love it. Compete at very high level in the 40A in XC, GP, occasional MX, Enduro, etc. Bike LOVES to pass LOUD modified 450s and up because it is smooth and strong runner. Warmed up, dead engine starts going well thanks to GreyRacer. Bike starts decent cold. Runs well all through the range. After say a very hot run, and stop...sometimes starts first kick, sometimes not. With or without hot start...when not start..it is frustratingly tough. I was told to mess with leak jet
but not sure where to go (need more understanding of it..sorry)...Tried leaner/richer pilot..did not seem to help either way. Sorry for being a dope but this weekend...wet and 45°...bike was, as always, a RIOT..but again starting was hit or miss and getting a bit mad at myself for not fixing this. Thanks for any help in advance. Am at work and forgot what i actually have in the carb but above notes are correct i am pretty sure. Always clean filters (No Toil), 93 pump gas (no ethanol), and i do not tap rev limiter..i am a gear-high racer...bike is holding up fantastic...but for this one thing..it is an amazing race bike.
Also...it prefers to start in neutral with the rekluse.
..this makes a difference...sucks but if you try to start in gear ..it just does NOT prefer it..pop in neutral ...odds go up a TON
