Tail wind and down hill?
littlemike said:Interesting statement about the cold fuel, does fuel flow more slowly when its cold ? would it change how the engine warm up ?
Today its in the low 40's and my bike started right up with no hesitation (no choke). Once started the bike idle very low, less then 1000 rpm, try to apply choke and the bike just dies out. If I apply some quick throttle, the bike would die. I have to use the throttle very slow to raise the rpm. When the bike is warm, it idle at around 1500 rpm
What do you guys do when the bike is pretty cold ? Do you guys let it idle for a few minutes before going for a ride ?
Misc info on my bike:
Have full Yoshi exaust
Needle shim with 2 washers
snorkel remove from airbox
Kleen air system remove

Think about it, the only any engines runs better when its warm, is when the fuel enters the hot combustion chamber it gets warmed up very fast, then the spark ignites it easily. Cold fuel = Bad combustion.
We have snowmobile here and when we start them at -25 celcius ( -13 F). We have to use the prime button (aka injecting liquid fuel in the carburator), because at that temperator, the fuel doesn't burn Right at all, lol.
