    Mine is really cold blooded, and needs a little help from the enricher to start. I'll crack it a little bit and it usually fires up. I do have a throttle lock, so I'll nurse the enricher back in til it smooths out and lock my throttle open a crack or two for an idle to help it get warm while I prepare to get on it.

    Yep, that was how I did it for years, but with having installed the Factory Pro jet and needle kit in it and the Aries-1 Ram Air Induction Cover, I now don't touch the enricher or the throttle. Just turn the ignition on hit the start button and it starts first try and idles perfectly hands off!!!!!!
