2007 FE550 COLD START ISSUE , HELP PLEASE

OK My 550 will start fine when its been sitting in the garage , on both E start and Kick . It also starts fine when hot .

But when I take it off the ute after driving to a ride its a complete bitch to start , roll start seems to be the only thing to start her up .

Any ideas ????

I m thinking maybe go smaller on the pilot ?

Check the Valves ?

thanks in advance

Flooding, do you turn the fuel tap(s) off when transporting? What year 550, Keihin or Dellorto?

If its all good other than after transporting, it must be flooding. Leaky fuel tap is all i can think of. Do you use the hot start and no choke to get it going, or only a bump start it?

Perhaps the flaot level is a bit high too?

I only use the hot start when its alraedy hot .

I use the Choke when cold .

Yep I think your right about flooding , both taps shut the fuel off no probs .

Its way harder to start cold flooded than hot flooded , Its not that bad really after you loop it out etc then pick it up , I usually just kick it over with the manual decomp on a few times then she fires up , when its cold and apparently getting flooded its a bitch , I have to roll start it .

thanks again

In this case, using the choke makes it even richer if already flooded, so try no choke, and the hot start will lean it off, so even cold it can be used to advantage if flooded.

Pull you hoses off your fuel taps and check whether the taps leak.

Ok no leak in the fuel taps .

Its definately flooding while transporting though , I ll transport with the fuel turned off and I ll drain the fuel bowl as atemp fix .It seems to flood very easy all I have to do is twist the throttle a few times and its flooded and takes a bit to fire .

What should I look at doing to fix this issue ? any ideas please
