I just bought an '83 XL600 and so far I love it. The only problem I am having is consistently starting it. When cold I can give it full choke and it will start in 4 kicks. But if it dies shortly after the cold start it takes quite a bit of work to get it started again. I can usually smell gas shortly after trying to restart it. Also I dont know what the correct proccess is to after i dump or flood the bike. Thanks for your suggestions.
