2008 won't start

I have a 2008 artic cat prowler and when u first go to use it. It will not start without taking the breather off that comes out of the back of the cab, unlike can put ur hand over it and it fires right up, once u get it started the first time it runs great, what can it be??

Welcome to the site! Sounds like your choke is not working. Try pushing the gas to the floor, then let off before turning the key, This sets the choke. Sounds like you have a 650 machine.

If its a 650, it's very likely as RD says, plus there is a vent hose that runs from the carb, out the back under the V bars that runs down towards the skid plate. Put a golf tee in it and plug it up. Seems to help out a hell of a lot of hard start problems.
