    GP1200 HOT Starting Problem

    Hello All,
    Here's the problem. When cold I can prime and start (turns over fine), she runs, but when shut off she won't fire back up for a while. If she tries to fire but doesn't start I have to wait again til she decides to fire and run. Once running everything seems fine. I thought it may be a fuel pressure problem since I wasn't getting any relief from the gas cap, so I pressured up the tank and it was fine. Checked plugs, spark, adjusted on lows, and tried priming with no luck. Any ideas??????

    The gas tank should have pressure after you run it. maybe check the one way check valve on the tank it is supposed to allow air in but not out. also check the rubber around the top of tank I have seen these go bad and leak.

    I found the problem, it was the Riva Blue CDI. I put the stock CDI in and she cranks and runs fine. Anyone know if the Riva CDI's are repairable?

    My understanding is they are not repairable. so it starts hot and cold now?
