Hey whats up im new to the board, this is actually my first post. Well anyways, i just recently bought a supermoto bike. It's a 2000 YZ426. Thing is, im having tons of trouble getting this thing started. I know they are famed to be a pain in the ass to start, but this bike has got the 450 cam conversion (no decomp lever). It's got the blue-wire mod. It seems to have everything done to it that would aid in getting it started, but still a pain in the ass. I literally will kick this thing (when cold) what seems like a million times to get it running. The only way i can get it going, is with the choke left in, and give it one full crank of throttle, and then after a couple of backfire kicks it will start up. today i stalled it in traffic, and pushed it to the side of the road, kicked it a billion times, choke, no choke, hot start, no hot start, tried everything, the bastard would not start. i began to push it home, half way decided to try it again, gave it a shot of throttle and one or two kicks she started. anybody have any suggestions as to whats going on? i love this bike, but lets face it, for a street plated bike, this is rediculous and not practical. i need to find some answers. all help is greatly appreciated! thanks!
