When its below freezing outside. All bets are off. Just let me find a hill and push it.
Once warm its a one kick running ordeal, with the occasional WTF
it didn't start then it can be coerced into running with a HARD KICK and WOT.
All is happy again.
I should put the TT600 carb on it. the 550 carb is jetted a bit lean. I actually cleaned up the 600 carb but decided to go riding instead of changing it.
