KLR Hard Starting Hot
On vacation and my brother is having probllems starting his bike after shutting down when at operating temp. We stop, have a snack or take some pictures and his bike won't restart. Had to push it a couple of times. Once started again he has no issues.
What he figured out works is when shutting doen he uses the choke to kill the engine. The when re-starting he first cranks it over a couple times on full choke then, close choke, hold throttle wide open and it starts with a roar.
Any ideas what may be casuing this. It almost like his carb empties out.
