    Starting a 98 XP

    Ok,

    I went through this same thing with my GPR...what's the best way to start this thing up? Pump the throttle and pull the choke and hold it while hitting the start button? What is some of the ways that you all start your XP's?
    Thanks in advance,
    Steve

    hold the start button first, i dont think you should hold it too long without a break tho. 5 seconds maybe of pulling the choke in and out and holding the start button. if that doesnt work, hit the throttle a few times. then try it over again.

    I pump my throttle 3-4 slow pumps, hold the choke and they fire right up.
