I started having a problem with my 96 ZR 580 EFI. The last two times I rode when we stopped along the trail and take a 10 minute brake it wont start without installing new plugs. The plugs seem wet. It runs great all the time except this just started last weekend. Both days it did the same thing. Cold it starts fine. Thanks for any suggestions. Bob

Your choke is stuck on. Pull the chokes out and make sure that nothing is wrong with the cable or springs. Sometimes the end of the cable (near the handlebar riser) where it enters the pull box, comes apart and it will only pull on 1 of the chokes. You may have to clean the carbs too. Definitely- choke is stuck on.

You should check for any trouble codes on the ECU. There may be a dirty sensor or something like that that is telling the computer it is a cold start and it floods the engine and fouls the plugs on a hot start. Look for any sensors in the air box and give them a cleaning. See if that helps. I dunno
