the only thing that i can think of is maybe the mixture is too rich but idk. bigger bikes are just like that, my 250F will start first kick every time when its cold but if it dies while riding its a bitch to start.

Four-stroke thumpers are notorious for being hard-starters when hot... that's why a lot of the MX racers have a hot-start lever, but they STILL have a hell of a time if they stall on the track.

Hotstart= An air enrichener to help lean out a rich mixture when the engine is hot. (The opposite of a "choke" knob) Great for tempermental large bore singles.

BTW - this is a 4-stroke single problem - my 2-stroke KX250 starts 1st or 2nd kick, hot or cold.

Ride safe.


Shut up and hang on...
