Verify that your hot start cable is functioning and that the plunger is not seized. Your fuel/air mixture could be off.

All you would have to do is reshim the valve that is out of adjustment. Not to difficult to do but if you not comfortable I think it costs around $150-200 to have a shop do it. If you do it your self get a hotcams shim kit $70 and your set.
