Default Re: Choke lever? hard to get going

Another thing it takes some real pedaling to get it the motor started.
Does it have to do with the weather,choke lever,spark plug?
I ordered a ngk spark plug by the way.
Over here I posted a couple of times on a question something like this...

With the lever all the way up, it's a very fuel-rich environment, swinging it down allows more air to mix in. I usually start with the lever up and give it a few seconds before I open up the choke, just until the idle of the engine steadies a bit. I also pedal along with the motor for the first few minutes from a cold start. (On the stock Carb of C'Thulu I never had to adjust the choke, it would start easily with it wide open).


Any day that starts with a good ride is already a better day, and a bad day riding still beats a good day working.
