Question about Honda Gxv160 55hp 55 Hp 25mm Dia Lawn Mower Engine
You need to do a cylinder leak down test. That will tell you if it is a valve, which one or if it is rings. Try a compression test too. 5 pulls should be 160 to 190 ish. If all that is ok check the carb to see why it is causing a rich running scenario

Before you spend time and money on Buds solution I had exactly the same symptom .If it starts first pull when the engine is warm it is not a fuel or spark problem ,it will be the choke,on mine when the choke lever was full on it did not opperate the choke enough as the cable goes to choke it turns the metal bit clock wise but the metal choke will bend over time and will not be opening the choke just carefully bend the metal bit with some pliers so when the cable is on choke it now actuly opens the choke,it will now start first time when cold ,try this first before you strip apart the carburetor,I liked buds solution may be you might like mine ! www.distinctivehomeimprovements.co.uk

You may have to replace the carb.But before you do.Check the the fuel line.There is a small screen in the carb,it may be clogged.Inside the tank is a small cylindrical filter,make sure it is good.Break the fuel line at the in line filter,to make sure gas is getting to there,if it is the problem is in the carb.
