I had a problem getting mine started hot, but that wasn't my main complaint. It was the bog and stall with throttle chops and quick throttle. Sent the carb to Zipty for their racing mod. I think $125. Cured everything. Starts super easy now all the time. Watch out for the new found throttle response. I was doing the arm pump wave, and just touched the throttle without having a good grip. Sent me for a loop. Now when my hand touches the throttle it is with intent.
