Hi all. I'm new to this forum & need your help if poss. Just bought a 2002 WR426 from ebay (I can hear the groans already!). Turns out that 5th gear is shagged & it seems to be a bas#@%d to start when "warm". I can live with the 4 gears for now. I'll strip it during the winter & put it right. It's this starting problem that really gets my goat. My right foot has a massive bruise underneath from kicking the tw@ttin' thing! - When it's cold, it'll start first or second kick, but if you ride it a couple of miles & switch off, it'll start straight away, but if you leave it for 10 minutes or so, it takes about half an hour before it'll start again! I know it has the cold & hot starting chokes & I'm wondering if I've not mastered them yet..? - I'd be really grateful for any advice as I've already knackered one right training shoe, one right boot, two pairs of socks & one right foot!! Cheers, Skin.
