Default Re: First ride questions

As has been said here many times before; all of these 2 strokes are different. Some like the choke, some don't. Some like a little prime, some hate it. A few of them just want to be left alone and pedaled for a few feet and then there are those that want lots of speed to fire. You'll need to experiment with your particular engine and find out what it likes. Make sure you have no air leaks, check for a good fuel flow and that the choke plate is open fully. Play with it, experiment and eventually you'll find that 'Sweet Spot' that will give you the quickest start. Good luck, have fun.
