thx Flanny.
That was my thinking as well.
I agree though Chokes would be pretty cool. I am interested to see how it works out on Gregors 'new' bike...

I would post a pic of your machine in its new digs but in fear of hi-jacking the thread I digress...

With the amount of torque this beast pulls other than the carbs / starting I could use some advice on how to gear through wheelies!!??

If you want to post a picture of the (former) Flannymobile here, you'd have to throw-down a major project to burry the 2WD Gregor Mobile once and for all:

A few suggestions that MAY be worthy enough for a highjack:
- A supercharger and 1290cc big bore project; or
- some kind of Ohlin's Active or Skyhook suspension conversion with 13 inches of height adjustable preload and continuously variable suspension damping; or
- an actual fully functioning windshield that fully eliminates buffeting

Ow, my eyes!

Looks like this weekend will be a big ride/test/video adventure with Gregor and a few friends. Make sure your health insurance is paid up!

I'd pay more for the girl than the moped.

At the risk of hijacking, all your methods I use too however there is one more;

3 pumps, hit the starter. It'll start and soon die.
3 pumps, hit starter and immediately try to catch it with enough throttle that the bike, if warm, would be at about 4000 rpm. I have found the bike will usually accept these revs and fart once or twice whilst revving but after 20 secs or so it good to let idle.

thx. Yes this is basically the combination that I end up using.
4 pumps, hit the starter. It will start and soon die.
2 - 3 pumps, hit the starter and immediately attempt to catch it with the throttle and at the same time use the throttle lock to hold it there. As you mentioned it will cough or fart? a couple of times and then continue to idle after about 20 sec or so it will start to warm up and the rpms increases at this point I release the throttle lock and the idle drops back to an idle...

This method does seem to work sometimes but on colder mornings it still has problems getting to that point. I will continue to try on colder mornings below 0C.

Lets see, the carbs are missing a choke to richen the mixture when cold, but the carbs have accelerator pumps that add gas when twisting the throttle. After pumping the throttle 3-4 times on the initial start, has anyone tried snapping the throttle every 2-3 seconds to manually richen the mixture until the engine warms up?

Yes I have tried that as well - usually it just kills it. Sometimes it gives a nasty backfire and then quits as well when I give it the extra shot.

Nice bike btw!

Don't listen to him, that bike of yours is a thing of beauty.

He's just jealous.

Eye of the beholder. Every time I see a link to Marty's work I want to make a new chain equiped front end for my Rotacular! The Christini setup is great for forks but if you have a FFE, eliminating all the bevel drives is a huge improvement. One (dozen) projects at a time please!
