Re: First time firing up the engine, problem! :(
Dude bairdco That explanation has got to be made into a sticky!!! It couldn't be explained better with a video.
lolitsdaelan another thing you want to look for is if the slide is sticking at any point in the throat of the carb. If it is you need to loosen the clamp that holds the carb. on the intake, just a little or the carb. will fall off. I also have learned the slide will stick sometimes cause the engines cold. If it does that just use the choke to keep the idle low until the engine gets warmed up.
At any rate, Glad to hear you got it running. You'll be riding soon. Welcome to the addiction, Enjoy the ride.
Bairdco Kudos Bro.
Hope it Helps. I am also a proud member of the 20 MPH. club
