Re: Starting up from cold

Have you checked and set your valve clearances?
Also are you starting the kick from TDC?

Re: Starting up from cold

It is always worth setting your valve clearances correctly but also Check the gap on your spark plug and also check the inlet manifold is sealing correctly both on the head end and carb end.

If you are running an open air filter set the pilot screw to about 3 turns ou, this should get you in the ball park to get the bike running.
