mine seems to start quicker when the motor is warmed up, but not so warm that the fan is running. In 1st gear usually. Not as fast as the YFZ, but a he11 of a lot faster than the 450ER I had.

Turn the idle adjustment 2 clicks faster. I started starting the bike in nuetral & it that worked. I just put a new clutch in now it starts in gear with no problem. I soaked the plates for a day. I have a yosh pipe & a PCIII. Good luck.

Mine is completely stock...Rode it for a bout 20 hours wtih no problems and then my first race it gave me crap. Had to have some friends push start me and started about 2 minutes after my class left. Adjusted the idle knob alittle bit. I think my problem was a low battery, I have a bad habit of leaving the key on when its just sitting resting.

Went home and charged the battery and it seemed to work for me pretty good. The next race I got 4th on the holeshot.

I usually hook mine to a battery tender for 2 days before a race weekend. I also upgraded to the Honda battery (YTZ-7S), a little more CCAs.

Remember on idle speed, the higher the Idle, the harder it will be to start! and don`t touch the throttle, or give it more gas!
