Hey guys, I just got a 2000 yz426f yesterday. I am having a hard time starting it, it has been sitting for a while. I changed the spark plug and took the gas tank off and emptied it and put fresh gas in it. I noticed when I turned the petcock on it started leaking fuel out of the bottom of the carb bowl. I went ahead and ordered a new petcock because the current one is pretty rough. I guess my questions are: 1. What is the best way to start this monster? (I read a lot about how hard this bike is to start) 2. Why is fuel leaking from the carb bowl? 3. Can someone explain the hot start function? Thanks guys!
