Poor Starting - Scottoiler issue?
The guy that's selling me his bike told me that it sometimes turned over a few times before starting. Having read through a number of posts on this forum I decided to open the fuel cap and try it, in order to see if it might be a vacuum problem.
Well, the engine burst into life instantly (much to his surprise) and I suggested that it might need new fuel/vacuum pipes. He mentioned that he had T'eed in his Scottoiler to the pipe to the fuel tap, and not directly onto the carb, and I wondered if this could cause a lack of vacuum pressure, possibly due to a poor fit at the T.
I forgot to ask at the time, but why do some people tee in the Scottoiler connector and not just take it direct from one of the carbs?
