    Default Hard to Cold Start

    Alright my 2002 Rx Is an awesome ski. But when i do the first start of the day it is super hard to start. On the first attempt, i pull the choke, no choke, full throttle, little throttle and no throttle or choke. It just never starts on the first try. But after a second on the second try, it starts right up with choke and idles fine. It also has the typical "pulling the choke to overcome bogging" when its cold. I just went through the carbs. Is there a adjustment screw or anything?

    You shouldn't expect it to fire right away cold every time, needing the choke is normal, as is the engine needing a bit of time to warm up before running right. If you set it up to fire right away, you'd probably be so rich that you'd foul plugs and have a hard time idling once it was warm.

    Yeah, but you have to crank on it for about 15 seconds the first time. I don't know. my xp i had fired up after about 5 seconds on the first try.

    It does bog around 1/4 throttle after its warm.
