Re: WOW ! I thought I was on my own...
One trick is to put the choke on open the throttle and try to start as normal then stop and check for a wet plug, on one of mine which has the nt carb I have to have the choke lever all the way up and open the throttle to get it to hit. I thought it would get better after breakin but after about four tanks thats still what she likes. As it warms up I lower the lever.
