Like the title says
i am having truoble with starting my bike when hot
it starts fine on a cold morning with no choke but after you ride for a while it. you have to hold the throttle wide open to get it to start back up
any help on this sublect would be a big help
Thanks

well i have not had a chance to look at it
i think it is the float level in the carb
but with all the good wether we have had just been out riding lots
it's a small Honda cm250c
i will try and post up some up to date pic's soon

If it starts with no choke when cold then needs wide open throttle when hot it sounds like it must be running too rich.
You sure the choke isn't stuck?

the choke is not working the cable snapped one day and i never bothered to replace it
and on a very cold morning i still use it with my hand but it dose not need much
and i also think it is running rich
but if you ride it for a while and stop 10 min later it will start ok ???
i still haven't checked the float been lazy
but i also have done a rejet on the carby and that has made the problem worse no change in the problem it has amplified the problem
i have also replaced the plugs and checked them after the first couple of rides a bit rich but not to bad ???
oh well it runs and i am happy
still looking for a new bike to play with i want something bigger cheers
