    GP1200 starting problems

    I just bought a 2001 GP1200r and its very difficult to start. Once its running its fine, but is this normal with carbeurated engines?? Or does anyone have some advice on how I can make it start easier.
    Thanks

    i put 20 drops in each cylinder,@ 40 to 1 this will save your battery and your cylinders

    Yes, it is normal, and a lot of people install the primer kit. I didn't because it's one more part to worry about and I have to store a long time during the winter.

    I just start my ski in the garage before I go anywhere (which I would do anyway). Unless I'm traveling a long drive away, I have no problems starting right up when I hit the water. Comes down to how much it bothers you.

    That model has an accellerator pump on it if it is stock, and when the boat is down, the pump in essence acts like a primer. That in combination with a full choke should be more than enough to get it to start.

    If you pull the throttle, there should be a certain amount of resistance on the trigger when you pull it, and you can litterally hear the gas being squirted into a couple of cylinders (like a primer would sound).

    If you do not hear the sound, then choke it and crank it for a few seconds. This will help draw the fuel to the carbs.... then you should be able to hear it squirt when you pull the trigger.

    The trick is to make sure that there is gas in the fuel supply line to the carbs. Of course, if the diaphram is bad in the accellerator pump, it is not going to work.
