View Full Version : warrior cold start issue

ive got a 90somethingish warrior that recently developed a cold start issue. when it is cold it will not start off the starter no matter what convincing you give it. Starter fluid, jump...nothing. If you push it, it will fire right up. after its warm it will start everytime as soon as you hit the button.

Sounds like base timing retarded to far.
Excessive compression.

Its probably just mad at you because you took the sweet dual exhaust off of it.

how in the heck do you set timing on a 4wheeler? It used to not do this. Before it got riden 50 miles at harlan i could go out at any time and it would fire right up. it didnt start this until i put alot of miles on it at one time

to adjust your timing you have to turn the stator and its in oil on your quad I think so pick up some oil when you do it
