4 posts in this topic

i just got another 426 this is my 2nd my first i bought new and never had any problems with it. but the new one that i just got is so damn hard to start from cold. when it warms up i dont even have to pull the hot start because it starts so easy when its warm. what should i do? could it be the valve's?

Well, it would be nice if you could tell us a bit more about what state of tune the bike is in.

Have you adjusted the fuel screw? Is the aircleaner clean?

Based on a very short description, I'd say it sounds like textbook valve clearance issues causing difficulty when cold.
