After much deliberation, I bought an 02 YZ426 on Sat. I loaded up on Sunday morning and headed out for some much anticipated fun, only to be frustrated much of the time trying to start a hot bike. (stalling while trailing it with standard gearing, this part I know how to fix) Luckly, there was a kind YZ426 rider who explained his method for getting the beast started, but I still struggled. He could get my hot bike started within 3-5 kicks where I'd spend 15 minutes trying to copy his proceedure. Someone, please detail the correct way to get these things running when hot! When it's cold, I pull out the choke, find the compression stroke, pull the compression release and get the piston just past TDC, let the compression release out, and give it a healthy kick. 2-3 kicks later we're up and running. When its hot, if I try the above proceedure (substituting the hot start for the choke), I'll just tire myself out. Please help, when it's running it's an absolute blast. When I'm kicking it silly, I want to push it off a cliff!
