How do you start your bike?

Post by jay686 »

Hi,just after some feedback on how my fellow c1,2 owners start their bike from cold.Full choke,any throttle,no throttle,half choke..ect..ect...

My bike rides beautifully smooth,but can be a pain to start sometimes(always starts tho).Usually turns over a fair few times before it fires up.When warm it virtually starts on the button.

cheers

Same as Torque. Although in the colder weather she sometimes needs a touch of throttle from cold aswell as the choke. Never failed on me yet.


It's not the pace of life that scares me...It's the sudden stop at the end

I agree with torquec1, athough the C2 I have now, wants full choke and some throttle for some reason, probably the dyno jet kit and race can, then again I'm new to it, and still learning about it.
