2009 starting

Update: Installed the 48 pilot w/fuel screw at 2 turns and the 2nd start went much better. 2 blips of the throttle and she fired in 4 kicks. Probably a combination of the bigger pilot and being started a couple times now. I can't wait to ride it!

09 YZ450F with stock jetting with MRD full exhaust system @ Mammoth bar yesterday @ 50 degrees outside temp. I fully rotated the throttle twice and with choke on, kicked it once (from compression stroke TDC) and...It started. I then proceeded to romp through the mud like an 8 year old school boy!!

Damn...Why didn't I read this before wasting several thousand cold start up kicks....

On the bright side though you've probably got a tough ass right leg.

First ride yesterday at an indoor mx track. 30 degrees outside and around 35-40 inside. Bike started 2nd kick cold and 1st kick all day thereafter. Couldn't be happier!:moon:

See,........ works every time!
