1. I open the choke then I press the starter button, in N with the kickstand down. it sometimes will "run" like this
for a few seconds and then it dies down. If I have already attempted to start it with the choke closed and it runs
and while running I open the choke, it shuts off. it almost feels as if i'm CLOSING the fuel supply when I open the choke up.
I know this would make no sense but that's how the bike responds.
2. kickstand down.
3. yes, full on.
4. I'm in Canada so, we're talking colder than in the states; although I only ride when its above 14 celcius (58 F)
5. The bike did sit in the garage all winter. it does that too overnight so it doesn't really need to sit long. Last year I rode from
Toronto down to Newark, NJ. Everything was fine. the next morning when I tried to start it, same thing and then after I go through the
process for like 6 mins of trying to start it, then it runs. its always the same. it seems it sustains combustion as the engine warms up so,
I start it cold it would just stall, then second attempt it would run for like 2 seconds, shuts off, then another attempt then it would run for 5 seconds and
shut off, then again and again until it doesn't shut off anymore. The jet size I'm not sure of an exact # but they are the Stage 1 Jet kit from Cobra.
I did clean everything, thoroughly when I switched the jets last year. the air filter is a KN performance air filter (not stock) which I also
changed because the engine was backfiring a lot when I purchased the bike, however; back then the choke worked as supposed to.
1.Are you starting the bike with clutch pulled in and when let it out it stalls?
2.Is your kick stand up or down.
3. Is chock full on.
4. What temperature are you calling cold.
Any other info would be helpful. Has the bike sat long? What size jets? We're pilot jets cleaned? Stock are filter?
