Is your RMX hard to start?
Posted 21 July 2012 - 07:47 AM
Mine is very hard to start when the engine is cold (first start of the day). sometimes i have to use ether to get it running.
it starts easy afterwards
I run the bike on 98 octan fuel and have unrestricted airbox and cherrybomb
any ideas to make it start easier?

as HM said, valves and cam chain could need a check...

Actually when i was winter driving it was easier to start (-15), man its scary to drive on snow, never now if it will bear or not.
will check the valve clearance and chain tension when i come home

Also, carb problems can also be a problem. If the temperature varies a lot from winter to summer, then you made need to adjust your fuel screw a little. My assumption is it's a little rich (if it's hard to start), the fuel screw should be located on the bottom of the carb, on the side closest of the head, in the middle. Tighten it a 1/4 turn, if it doesn't help, set it back to what it was.
