Thank you. Any suggestions on where I should start troubleshooting, based on the hard start issue? The other interesting thing about this is it only happens on the first start up of the day. If the motor is at all warm, it fires right up. Also, I only get the hesitation/stumble on the first few tip in/leading throttle events after a hard start.

Thanks! I'll read through it again.
