You got to give my F5 some throttle when it's warm otherwise it won't start!?
What could be wrong?
I think the sleed should start right up when it's warm!

The reason they do that is so it starts really easy when cold. With carbs there is no happy median I think. EFI Baby.

My F5 snopro is the same way. I have to put the throttle down about 1/4th of an inch when I pull it over for it to start on the first pull when it's warm.

I don't have that problem?!? I do notice that it starts easily when cold which is a plus because it's ALWAYS cold where i'm at.

TOO MUCH FUEL, JET IT DOWN 1 OR I WENT 2.....SEEMS TO START RIGHT UP AND IDLE GOOD THIS TIME. THINK OF IT AS HAVING TO LET MORE AIR IN AT THE CARBS <_<

In your owners manual it tells you when the engine is warm you may have to depress throttle to start!! :wacko:

Gunner why do you say "wrong" sometimes the plungers are too high and with the choke off its still being choked slightly ,dropping them closes the orfice off when the chokes off.Have you ever worked on carbs?Atleast thats the way it works on mukuni round slides.

The main jet circuit does not come into play when starting engine.

Yes, I have experience with mikuni carbs, holley carbs, rochester carbs also. The reason I said wrong is because I've checked all settings and the plungers were set correctly and the issue still existed. No offense was intended. :)
