My sons 06 120 seems like its hard to start. It usually takes me 6-7 pulls to get it going. I always thought that 4-strokes should fire right up (1-2 pulls)? Is this normal?

Is it stored inside or outside? If it is outside it will take a little more to get it going. Does it start right away after it warms up? Ours needed to be pulled over a few more times to get it started after sitting outside in the cold for awhile. We need more info to help you out. :nosnow: in NEW YORK.

Stored inside, but in the cold weather.

Once its running it starts right up.

I also think that the idle maybe a little low.

I had similar problems with ours. It turned out to be a bad spark plug. I had just changed it out a month ago. Dropped a new one in, an it fired right up. I have had quite a few bad plugs the last few month in all of our machines.

I think that is your problem. From my experience with four strokes in colder weather, it takes a few more pulls than normal to get them started. Once they are warmed up they should start on the first or second pull. thumbguy
