Hot Starting issue
My bike is pretty new to me (it's a 2003, just got it used with 2250 miles on it), but I'm having difficulty getting it started quickly when the engine's hot.
When it's cold, even in warm temperature outside, I give it full choke or a little less and it starts right up. I've been through a number of tanks of Gas, so not a stale gas issue.
When it's hot, such as just after you kill the engine, I have a heck of a time getting it started. If you give it no choke, it will rarely catch. Sometimes, giving it a steady quarter throttle while turning it over works with the choke off, but other times I end up giving it a little choke. It all ends up annoying when you're sitting somewhere like the gas station.
When it's warm and has been sitting 30 minutes, it's more of a guessing game.
I'm the first to admit I don't know what's normal for this bike, so I'd appreciate any feedback. Think it's just me, or do I need to do some work to the bike (and if so, what?) ?
