FE400 ´01 - hot start issues

Hi!

My friend just picked up an FE400 ´01 - and went out with me yesterday, only to spend a fair bit of time trying to get it to fire up.
When cold it started fine, but after 20 minutes worth of driving, we stopped to regroup, after that it didn't want to play no more.

He's going to go through all the basic stuff - but we're thinking about fitting the carb with the standard jetting, does anyone have the numbers (or even a jetting that's proven and works *well* )?

Try going down one size on the idle/pilot jet. Lean the idle/pilot circuit as much as possible to get good hot start results.

I had some similar issues with my 400. Have a look at this thread. I'm pretty happy with mine now. Of course it could be other stuff too.

....an update on this, the stator (sem...) was found to be off, we got hold of a new one through a guy at SEM (sometimes it's handy to be swedish) - the new stator is in, we've got spark, but it still won't start.
The bike ran fine for 20 minutes, was stopped with the kill switch, then it hasn't run since - and we had no spark, swapped stator, now we've got spark..

I know the valves has been adjusted since (by his father, who is used to work on the bergs, the lads had an old FE501 before this bike), and the plug cap has been swapped for a brand new one.

The kill switch has been removed as well.

The hi/lo ignition cable is cut off from the previous owner, I've searched a bit on this here, and if I've understood it correctly, grounding this puts it in a more aggressive timing curve, but it shouldn't matter trying to get it to fire should it?

The carburator I'm not sure what's been done to, but I know they've bought the stock jetting parts, and I assume they've gone through that.

Any ideas are welcome - they fubard the kick lever today trying to get some life out of it....
