Hard start after sitting in the sun.
I have recently been having a hard time starting my '09 KLR650 after the bike has been sitting in the direct sunlight for a while. I have to open the throttle fully and crank on the starter button. Sometime I even have to open the choke a little. Once it starts, it runs beautifully. This only happens when the bike is sitting in the heat of direct sunlight, never when it is parked in the shade, my garage, under a tree, etc.... I live in southern Arizona where the temps can be well over 100F. Any ideas?
