I finally got to ride my classic, and I really like it. However I have an issue with starting when hot.

After I stop and sit for a bit, such as get gas, I have to crack the throttle to start it back up. If it sits for a longer while, say an hour, it starts up great.

Is this a problem or just an annoyance? It runs great, idle is at 1500 rpm, and the idle mixture screws are at 1.5 turns out.

Thanks!

Sounds like the classis Polaris start up routine. When the engine is warm you have to crack the throttle some. Perfectly normal

Same is true on my 2002 800 as well.


It's not a big deal, but can be a pain when you are trying to pull over the big 800 with one hand a work the throttle with the other.

Perfectly normal. When I warm-start my '01 600 I crack open the throttle as I pull the recoil. Thats a typical starting prodecure for a reed-valve 2-stroke.
