I am hoping someone will have a suggestion on this. So my Bike P200E will start up cold (i.e., sitting over night) in one to three kicks. Then riding it runs fine, idles fine, doesn't change. However after a long healthy ride (say and hour or so) If i turn the bike off for a moment (stopping at the ATM) it will not kick over (immediately after) again. Kind of like it's flooded but it shouldn't be. The only way I can get going again is to bump start it where it bogs at first then goes back to running just fine. The thing is I don't know how long it takes to sit idle before the issue goes away. Of course I am thinking something in the fuel line. I have done a red kote on my tank and there are no bits or pieces coming off the tank or fouling the line so I don't understand what it can be. Isn't a huge issue but I would rather not have to bump start every time I need to make a short stop. Any ideas would be great. Taking it in for sme work shortly and will ask about this.
It is a two stroke isn`t it ? If it was a four stroke I would say that get your valve clearances right.
I am not an expert on two strokes, but I have heard that typical old two stroker problem is spark plug getting wet (too rich mixture) when engine is warm. You could try to choke or block the air intake when starting warm and at least renew the sparkplug which also gets worse because of extra fuel during startup.
