Every year around this time these kind of posts seem to come up and every year I post the same information...Ready for it.

!!!!!STARTER JET!!!!!

There I said it. Thats all there really is to it. Granted you have to have the proper pilot and main in there as well. But the starter jet is the reason it wont start in cold weather. The choke circuit is running lean. The starter jet only affects carburation when the choke is on. Put in a bigger starter jet and it should be better.

But like 99% if the people out there this info will go vastly ignored and people will go on and continue to kick to there hearts content. Enjoy!
