    98 GTI & 98 GSXL - Starting Issue

    Hey there,

    I have the same issue with 2 different machines. Is it just normal or is there something I can do to get it better?

    The GTI has 18 hours on a rebuilt engine. It runs like a brand new machine. The GSXL, well it has like 135 hours and I just rebuilt everything but the engine! It runs like its brand new also.

    The problem is, starting! I find myself cranking on the battery on both of them for a while! The best I can do is pull the choke with one hand, hold down the start button with the other, and pump the accelerator with my knee! Even then, it can take a good 10-15 seconds before they start!

    I am guessing they are not getting enough fuel? both have new plugs. The GSXL has all new lines and fuel selector and sparkling carbs.
