    Any QR50 owners on here? I've had one for a few years and it has always had a hard starting issue. Once it's running and warmed up it will fire on the first kick all day long. I'm guessing it's a choke or timing related issue. Looking for someone with experience tuning these bikes.

    Had one for a few years while my boys were little. Keeping the air filter clean and choke cable lubed seemed to help. I think the pilot jet is a little lean, but never had the gumption to check into jetting options. Other than that it was great bike that gave my kids many smiles.

    Thanks, I'm leaning towards the choke not opening all the way, just haven't had time to investigate.
