hard to start 97 xp 800
my xp is really hard to start, i kill two batteries just about and then it finally starts. once started you can turn it off and hit the button and it fires right up, but once a while has gone by without running same thing hard to start again. replaced batteries, plugs, even put fuel down carb to start still hard to start. compression is fine dont know what else to do.

Get rid of those chokes and put in a primer kit. Mine was the same way...a real pig to start...since putting in the primer kit I have had very little problems starting. It will take you some time to get the lines to prime up but when that is out of the way, a few shots with the primer and the added air flow from loosing the choke butterflies, they fire right up.

When was the last time you pulled the carbs and cleaned the internal filter screens?
