    Hard Start

    My '01 Ultra is becoming increasingly hard to start. Then if I let it set for more than 30 minutes or so I have to choke it again to get it started.

    Could this be a carb issue? Maybe needs to be cleaned or rebuilt? Is there anything that I can run through it like a carb cleaner that might help and get me through the weekend?

    I plan on rebuilding or replacing it this winter. Any help is appreciated.

    Just did it 2 hours ago. Better fuel economy I think, but didn't help the starting issue.

    I plan on running a can of sea foam through the gas tank. I'll post the results next week.

    Ran a whole can through it on Saturday. Started much better on Sunday. Stuff seems to work pretty good. May start using a can of it at the beginning and end of each season.
