Question-

My 1300c starts okay in the morning... then after sitting for 8 hours or so (occasionally this problem is reversed PM-AM), she starts up then stalls out and acts almost likes shes flooded, but I dont usually prime before I start, nor do I choke. It sometimes takes up to 20 minutes or longer before she gives an exhaust note to where I have to tickle the throttle to bring her to life.

Once the second start has occurred, shes stays running.

Gurus of the mighty X- (and v twins) I summon upon your wisdom!

:coffee:
:hmm2:

Replace the vacuum lines really cheep to buy the line from an auto parts store from their bulk spool.

If that doesn't help then the petcock may need some help.
