Trouble starting from cold
« on: November 11, 2016, 01:36:24 AM »
Hi,

I have this scooter in the GTS 250i version here in the UK.

For a few months now I've had trouble starting when the engine is cold? It can take a few long cranks with the ignition - sometimes 4 or 5 before it kicks in and then it runs fine. Of course it used to fire up on the button first time so something has stopped working somewhere. Anyone have any ideas? I've not had any work done to it so isn't anything an engineer has dislodged etc.

Thanks

Symian

hey
I'm a newbie too. Just got a rv250 and cold start is best done with partial open throttle. This technique advised by the service dept of my local dealer.
seems to work okay, my machine is an 08 with approx. 19K miles
