    Hot starting issue - 92 honda vt250

    Right so, my little spada roars into life when cold, but damn near wont start if its hot.
    It had a bit of a moment this evening, wouldnt cold start either.
    Turned the idle screw up and bingo.

    It had a series of vacuum leaks dealt to not long ago, and I believe the carbs were rebuilt at the same time.

    It is my daily ride and I run it on premium.

    Any help?

    Check the valve clearances. I had an issue years ago with no hot start but fine cold start. Clearances were a little off. The valves were slightly lifted when hot.

    Pushed it down the road. No shame. Now we wait.

    I had to push my Benelli superport up a steep hill in Maungaturoto many years ago. Fucking near died...

    It was View Street. Had to push it back to Biskerstaff Rd. I bet I couldn't so that now.

    I was teaching there at the time . All my kids saw me pushing it up the hill and gave me shit for weeks afterwards...little bastards!
