Starting

Just a quick question. After sitting the Artic cat is hard to start. After cranking a few times it starts. it is like the carb drains. Any ideas? Thanks

This is normal for the 650. It looses prime if you will. You have to crank some until the vacuum operated pump picks up.

There is a priming lever that some have rigged a chain to so you don't have to tear machine apart to use it

Instead of using the priming lever, has anyone installed a priming bulb like the one that is used on boats to prime the carb? If it works on a boat it should work on our cats. Just my .02. Thanks
