Actually, we made a quick stop and she ran into the Burberry outlet while I parked in the no-parking zone and did some bike maintenance. She bought nothing, but it was sort of packed like crazy there.

Don't believe I'm gonna be able to lay off this one. Just a flywheel away from being all over it.

According to Bikez you still have a carb. If that's the case... pull the choke out, hit the e-start, and do NOT touch the throttle. Is this method not working for you? My 450 doesn't like the cold either. You may have to change the jetting. Call Munn and ask Dan what needs to be done. He'll set you straight.

Must be a 4 stroke. I've had Honda and Yamaha 4 strokes and when cold weather hits you better get your game on

the stock 350 exc is choked up and runs lean, hard to start and stalls, I was hoping we could leave it stock but decided on a FMF, remapped to the XCF, and regeared; the difference is huge; go talk to Munn

btw the 500 exc has no such issues, starts without the choke, single cam, fan, runs like a beast

the 350 is worth the fine tuning

a few other things, you need to bump the start button not hold it down and give the throttle just a bit of a twist

if you have to kick a FI bike the first kick is to charge the capacitor, the 2nd or third will start, but if hot leave the choke out

gonna save for a rekluse for the 350 exc, its a little high strung and stalls wont lug up hill

So the 2012 350 is FI! I originally assumed so but then I quickly scanned the Bikez.com specs and saw carburetor. After double checking, I now see Keihin EFI. Oooops.

Good info Jbay. Hopefully the new guy will see your post. Maybe you should PM him.

Was this latest maintenance issue a result of your ride at RTB, some other event or did it just die?

Looking at his bike, I think he must have tried to start it while hydro locked. Starter and flywheel both missing teeth. Maybe it spent time in Arkansas
