 HPX hard time starting

I have a new HPX gator with about 80 hours on it and it has always had a hard time stating. It was at the dealer last week having a heater installed in the cab and while it wat there I had them take a look at the starting problem and when I picked it up they said it was good to go. Well it still will not start well it takes a lot of cranking to get it going. Any one know where to look for the problem? I think may be a timing issue or valve adjustment??? Thanks.

Does your HPX have the diesel or gas engine?

Hi,

The HPX that we're having trouble starting is the gasoline version.

We have tried adding dry gas and it's been maintained according to the manual.

Thanks!

Here are the area's that you need to look at below. How does the engine run once you get it started and warmed up? Could be several things causing this but Kawasaki engines are finicky about spark plugs and be sure you are using the choke properly on start up.
