Thumbs up Hotrod-- new guy

Hello, I joined because I have a 2008 650 XT, which is very hard to start after it sits for a while. After reading some of the other posts, I see that this is an on going problem. Looking for some suggestions on how to improve on this problem. I am a hotrodder (old cars) at heart! Thanks, glad to be here.

Welcome to the family. The carbed Prowlers use a vacuum type fuel pump and it they sit a few days to a week it's normal to loose prime.

I found that just a short pump and hold the gas pedal a touch down and it starts quicker than the motors turns once!!! I have a After Market CDI and that seems to be a common problem with them also!!! Short Pump, Hold Throtle and turn key!!!
