Figured I would adjust the valves today hoping to cure my hard to start problem. While I was in there I noticed the water temp sensor was unhooked, also found the rubber boot connecting the carb to the airbox was loose at the carb. No dirt inside the carb, and the filter was filthy so I don't think it was unhooked long. The temp sensor however looked like it's been off awhile. Anyway, adjusted the valves a little on the tight side then fired her up probably 20 times with not one problem. The valves werent real far out but seems to make a difference.
