Yes I have an 06 predator that I bought from a person who didnt ride it much spent most of its time in a garage, Got it had been riding it a bit did great. Now when trying to start from a cold start you have to pump the throttle to get it to start and hold it open a bit to keep it idling if not it dies mkes no difference if you use the choke makes it worse. Take it down the road get it up to normal running temp and it will idle ok. Have noticed though that it does get alittle gas out of the over flow tube and got told to put in a new seat and float needle but didnt stop the idle problems any tips would be helpful thank you.

thank You for the tip. I took it in and had it checked out the valves did need adjustment and it had a plugged up jet in the carb, so they told me thats what was causing the running problems. Thank you again fro the reply.
