    1996 waveraider 1100 very hard to start

    My waveraider 1100 is very hard to start when it is cold. I crank it with the choke and nothing the only way it seem to start is by me constantly pumping the gas and it finally starts.
    When it does starts it is blowing gas and oil out the exhaust.
    I have tried adjusting the carbs but no luck

    Proper way to crank is by slightly cracking throttle. When you open throttle wide it drops manifold pressure, making it hard to start. May be time for a carb rebuild, and if that doesn't solve it, crank seals may be leaking.
