Bike hard to start when itís hot???

<< < (2/7) > >>

Caffeineo:
May/may not apply.....but I have noticed occasional hard starting on my new V85 when hot. I have opened the gas cap and noticed the whoosh of air. Immediately after that the bike runs better. Easy to check and see if that is your problem. Also seems to have a greater effect when the gas tank is closer to empty?????

John A:
Another cause can be a slight vapor lock. The hot engine heats up the fuel lines. If you cycle the kill switch it does two things, it ( Iím told)  sets the ecu to start and it runs the fuel pump which should push fuel past any vapor that may be there.
