Hey Guys, I have been to two Hare Scrambles and you are suppose to start with you engines off. My problem, Is that it won't start when they throw the flag and by the time it does they are long gone.
Please Help
Thank you

I race XC also and i found that it cranks better if you let it idle and dont rev it like everyone else b4 you cut it off. I start mine let it idle and warm up and when its time to cut em off and restart dont give it any gas just let it start on its on then go. it works for me everytime. practice makes perfect. rmember dont rev it and i think it builds up wasted fuel in the cylinder or intake making it hareder to start next time.

I had the same problem. I had too big of a pilot jet and my idle was turned down too low.

Probally to big of pilot making it little too rich also check throttle cable and make sure its not too tight cracking open carb a little when starting mine was too tight causing starting problems. I'm running 48 pilot and 175 main starts when you think about it
