Question about 2006 Yamaha SR 400
I recently purchased and started riding a 2006 Yamaha SR400. I am trying to work out the bikes character and have found that she doesn't like to start when very hot i.e right after filling up at the gas station. I have read some articles on the net about SR's that refer to a "hot-start" button on the carburetor. The 2006 model doesn't seem to have one. Is there some other trick for these hot-start situations...the otherday I had to run and clutch start it in3rd which was not too hard, but i dont want to have to do that every time I fill up. I am aware of the kick indicator and use it always when starting.
Also when idling, fuel/gas drips from the overflow and also when kicking to do a hot start. Is this normal?
Fuel dripping when idling indicates a worn needle/seat combination in the carbuerettor. Repair requires replacement. Might also be the cause of your hot start problem since the engine floods when fuel pushes up too high in the float chamber. Try turning the fuel valve to the "off" position as soon as you stop after riding. It may prevent excess fuel entering the carbs and so curb flooding.
