It probably is 10 seconds. But it feels way longer!Relax. most skis with zeels do this. I really don't know the reason why. I can make an educated guess but they all do it for a for about 5-10 seconds. I think it has to do with the advanced timing and the lean mixture from fuel not being atomized on the cold engine. it probably goes to about 3000 rpm and then settles
Mark, fuel system needs to build pressure. Turn the idle down 1/2 a turn on first start up. Problem solved!Anytime my ski sits for a few days, when I go to start it, the RPM's go way up for about 20 seconds (feels like forever) and then slowly comes back down to idle. Any idea how I can stop this from happening? Thanks!
