Progressive Hard Starting

Hey folks,

I've searched the board and not been able to find the answer.

Lately my spook has been an absolute pig to start. It've replaced the rotor button, rotor cap, leads, plugs and battery and it still takes a few mins of cranking to get it to start.

Once it does fire up it idles nice and smoothly. If the engine has been running it will fire up without to much hassel. Mind you the longer I leave it to cool down the harder it is to start.

I'm not sure what could be causing it. any help would be good.

Re: Progressive Hard Starting

ok folks, turns out to be a stuffed spring on the choke. the choke was the only thing i didn't check. prolly should've checked it first, but being late at night in australia i didn't think of it.

so if anyone else has a similar problem, check that the choke is fully closed at start up. I manually closed mine and it fired up first go.
