Cold Blooded 07 Rubicon after prolonged sits
I have an 07 Rubicon that I am the original owner of... Bought new in 08
Anyways since day 1 it has been nearly impossible to start in cold weather if the bike sits for more than a couple of days. Even in the summer if it sits for a week it is noticably harder to start.
I know there is a primer bulb on the carb and yes I do use it. I have had this bike at the dealer multiple times and have been told over and over by my dealer to "live with it" as all Rubicons are this way..... COMPLETE BS!! 4 other friends of mine have 07's and 08's and none of them are like this. They all start right up. I have looked high and low on the "net" and have found quite a few threads about this but no real answers.
This is my 5th Honda ATV and none of them have been this way, **** most of them I could start in -30 weather with hardly even needing to use the choke.
So I guess my question is has anyone ever found a solution to this or do they just live with it? Obviously there is a problem as if 4 of my close friends rubicons do not do this there must be something wrong or "off" with mine. A setting perhaps ? (valves, carb, timing) or maybe just a build up of manufacturing tolerances ?
I am diving into mine today, start with setting valves and cleaning carb then setting it properly.
