When I bought my tre-k 1130 it had a wide open header on it. I just hit the start button and it started right up- no choke. I didn't care for the loud noise at high rpm's so I bought the stock exhaust and put it on. Now it has to choke which may not be a problem. Did this go lean or rich ? My plugs are pretty clean. The insolators are white with a little tan. I'm guessing this is good. The stock plug calls for a BP7eS. When I bought it the man used a BP8eS

Re: exaust change
Colder plug for NGK. Should I stay with that plug or go with a hotter plug ? That's really ... weird.
You have to use the choke ... which indicates you went lean
The old exhaust needed no choke shich indicates rich...
But you went back to stock which should, by normal standards, make the bike run RICHER if the jet sizes were increased,,,

before hitting that button, give it ONE full shot of throttle, pull the choke cable all the way out, hit the button...... ONCE.... Mine starts EVERY TIME! When it is WARM, give her ONE shot of throttle, hit the button......
I would check the ignition system as an electrical fault or timing fault will give this problem. I don't think it is the carburettor, it may be but I don't think so. Electrical I reckon. Condenser across points if it is mechanical ignition?
came out of the coffee shop went to start the bike and the battery didn't have enough power to turn over the motor....I pushed started it but it didn't want to stay running once I put it in gear. Last night charged the battery and today put it in the bike and it started right up....rode it for about 45 minutes waited for about half an hour before starting it up again and it started , no problem. I am thinking that maybe it is the voltage regulator or maybe the alternator....can anyone help me out with this? ,If you have a multimeter, you need to test the electrical output of the charging system. (Check the voltage of the battery when the bike is revving at about 2000 rpm)
If you don't have a multimeter, the best thing to do probably is to take the bike to an Autozone or similar car place where they will test the battery and charging system for free,,,
runs and starts great til the the next day???? Won't start up in the morning but when I return in the afternoon it will start right up. I checked the spark plugs theyre' dry as a bone. I choked it still won't start up in the morning.,Check your battery. Make sure the electrolite level is correct as well as voltage being ok.
I went through the same problem (no start in the morning except bump-start) with my '86 Radian just this last week. Filled the bone-dry ( Embarassed ) battery and it started great this morning. ,,,
