So I bought my bike two years ago now, and I've been constantly having starting issues. I had the bike rejected, and that seemed to mitigate the issues for a while, but now they're cropping up again.
1. When the bike started I always had to have the choke 1/2 way open for about 3-5 minutes or it would sputter and die.
2. Recently it stopped working completely. It cranks over, but doesn't fire up even with the choke fully open. I've replaced the battery, but nothing's changed. The night before it wouldn't start I filled it up and it was sounding great.
3. Went out after 2 weeks of sitting and it fired right up. Rand it for a couple of minutes and it sounded good. Now I'm back to it now starting again...
I know nothing about mechanics, and can only fix stuff after I watch it on YouTube. With all that in mind, any ideas besides a $1,000 dollar trip to the shop?
