got a kawasaki STX 1100 wich is a real pain to start from cold once we have got it started it runs fine all day??? i think it may be a problem with the fuel supply , the tank seems to be under too much pressure as when i remove the gas cap you can feel the pressure rushing out hard?? is this normal?? its got the 'CV' type carbs that the local dealer dosent know much about anyone got any ideas!!!! thanks

They all have cold dispositions. Primer kit is the way to go.

What year is your 1100STX. There was a update for hard starting. Make Sure you hold the Choke fully out while starting. Letting go will let it slip just a little. If you email me you VIN I'll check to see if your qualifies for the Recall. Marty Team Savage

I have a 900 STX that does the same thing. It is a pain to start when it is stone cold but when it finally gets going there is no problem. Would a primer help this?

Thanks, Jetskiboy

Yes but ummmm, if you have CV carbs I wouldn't install a primer. There was a TSB on hard starting that your dealer can remedy...

Nathan,

On some CV carb equipped Kawasakis (not all but some) will exhibit the mid range lean condition and seizure could occur, even on a stock boat. It is best to leave the chokes in place on the stock (again CV) carbs.
