    Starts when cold, but not when hot

    I have a '93 XP with a dual carb 650 engine that has been rebuilt recently. When cold I turn on the fuel, choke it and it starts up easily and runs great. The problem is once I shut it off, it will not re-start with the fuel on, it cranks but will not start. If I shut off the fuel, and crank it repeatedly (kind of like it's flooding) until it starts, then turn on the fuel it runs good again until it is shut off. Any idea what the problem is or how I fix it?

    check your tank vents, check for leaky needle and seats
