My guess is the starting fuel system is not working right.
There may be a "block" temperature sensor that is critical for the starting circuit. On a car, I found corroded connections to this temp sensor. I cleaned and scraped to bright metal. cleared codes. not sure you have an ECU but anyway it started immediately, whereas before it had a delayed and extremely rough start.

    I'll look into that, and I've checked the fuel pump to make sure it was putting gas out on ignition and it was. I have a Haynes manual but it hasn't been much help in this particularly odd situation.

My guess would be that the choke isn't working, assuming you're using it for cold starts. Check that the cable isn't broken or disconnected and that it moves at the carbs when you move the lever. There's no block temp sensor or ECU, this is a simple system.

Having a cut out problem on my honda vt750 going up hills and at haft trottle


Hi, James please disregard the carburetor parts I hope your Holley pump has the same specs as OEM otherwise that could be an issue and the usual suspects are:
1. Spark plugs in bad condition or partially fouled.
2. Spark plug cables in bad condition and leaking.
3. Spark plug gap too close or too wide.
4. Faulty ignition coil, module, and or sensor.
5. Battery nearly discharged.
6. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
7. Intake air leak.
8. Water, dirt, or rust in the fuel system, carburetor and/or filter.
9. Fuel tank vent system plugged or carburetor vent line closed off.
10. Carburetor controls misadjusted.
11. Damaged carburetor.
12. Loose, dirty, or corroded ignition module connector at crankcase.
13. Faulty MAP, CKP, O2, and/or CMP sensors.
14. Incorrect valve timing.
15. Weak or broken valve springs.
16. Damaged intake or exhaust valve.
