Partida en caliente

Quiero colaborar con mi reciente experiencia en, tal vez, el único dolor de cabeza que me ha dado la VN 750: el arranque en caliente.
Históricamente arrancarla en frío es una delicia. Solo basta tirar el cebador a fondo, sin tocar absolutamente nada, le das arranque y el primer pistón que pasa arranca y solo hay que ir quitando el cebador hasta que la marcha se estabilice.
Pero con el motor en caliente, es otra la historia.
Hice todas de las que pueden leerse en cuanto foro había.
Lo que había comprobado es que si le ponía una batería auxiliar (o con un cargador conectado) arrancaba perfectamente, descartando problemas de carburación y centrando en cuestiones eléctricas.
Ya había acercado los sensores electrónicos del encendido entre otras cosas, sin un cambio radical.
Este fin de semana pasado, decidí tomar el toro por las astas, agarré el manual de taller, y llevé a cabo lo siguiente:
- calibré de nuevo (bien cerca) los citados sensores electrónicos de encendido.
- cambié el aceite de motor. Puse el aceite mineral que recomienda el manual de taller. Sin ningún adhitivo.
- desarmé el burro de arranque. Limpié bien todos los contactos y cambié los carbones. Parece que los residuos de carbón "puentean" aumentando el consumo de energía (que no le sobra).
-Le puse unas bujías NGK un grado más caliente (6 en lugar de 7 u 8). Son las que llevan los motores marinos Suzuki de 4 tiempos.
Resultado: ¡bárbaro!.
Parece que el combo funcionó en alguna parte y ahora la Kawa arranca, en frío como siempre, pero en caliente mejoró totalmente y ya no tengo esos papelones de darle y darle sin respuesta.
La usé en una viaje con la experiencia que comento.
Espero haberle sido últil a quienes amamos esta belleza mecánica.
Saludos.
Roberto

Did you try the pick-up sensor mod? Seems to solve a lot of hot start issues....

Appears to me that besides installing a hotter set of plugs, he did re-adjust the pickup coils. Not sure to what dimension though. He seems to have had success solving his hot start problem.

I follow the jist of most of the translation, but what does the "disarm the donkey boot" refer to?

I`m thinking his exclamatory "barbarian" is equivalent to "that`s wild man!"

Oh, and by the way Roberto,
Welcome to the Vulcan madness!!

Burro de Arranque = STARTER.
Barbaro is an expression that means "great".
I supose that Roberto Enrique is from South America, because is even difficuld for me to understand certain expressions (I am Spanish).
For sure Google cannot help us with these words.

Have a nice day
