When you guys start your commando's, do you like me, have to give it quite a lot of throttle to get it going-even from cold with the choke on?

Yellow_Cad said:So MikeGray, does your initial start with slight choke have no throttle until after running? Also, is this a sequence for all outside temperatures or summer or winter? Let me know and I'll give it a try. I do think with the Makunis that the gas plumbing has some affect on the starting sequence.
My interstate has a Mikuni, allegedly they state not to use the throttle during cold starting just the choke, strange nobody has mentioned the importance of a good spark with starting mine runs a Rita and it will never start first time but always second kick it just needs to suck in some mixture then bang its away. I recently had a problem with a slight misfire after the choke had been closed it turned out to be the main petrol tap being partially blocked causing it to run lean.
