    Redo the fuel system 95 spx

    On a 95spx I'm going to redo the fuel lines and clean the carbs on my buddys machine. When its all said and done, do I just keep holding the starter and gas will eventually make its way to the carbs? My 96xp, when I redid the fuel lines, I have a primer and I pumped a little gas into the engine and started it multiple times and it'd run for a couple seconds each start. Took me about 7 starts to get gas through the fuel lines to the carbs.


    On my buddies 95 spx he has a choke, so I can't get gas to the carbs. I'm assuming by holding the start button it will eventually pump gas to the carbs?


    Thanks!

    I've read to put a plastic grocery bag over the breather with the top off to prime it faster

    No, the air box over the carbs. Take the top off and put the bag over it. Think of it this way. many times when trying to crank a mower etc you can put your hand over the carb intake, leaving a tiny gap and it'll crank right up. It creates a stronger vacuum and makes it suck fuel harder. Same principal with the bag.

    The carbs are pulling air from one place and fuel from another , splitting the pull force. if you lessen the amount of air It can pull then the remaining force pulls more fuel. Lol my explanations are lacking but you get the picture.
