I have an RM. I have this same problem after it sits for like a month. I put the gas on, the choke, and kick, about 3 million times, 10,000 curse words - you get the idea. It never just starts. It has about 5 hours on this thing - that's it. What's the first thing I should be looking at? Any links or otherwise would be great. I'm not a mechanic yet and have yet to even read the manual. Should I just take it to a shop and let them charge me - I"m assuming it's a minor issue. I don't know what a reed is, a float so I'm really at a loss. Got a lot of learning to do but haven't even got an experience riding partner to bounce things off yet.
