08 is driving me nuts

Teryx just does not want to start when it's cold. Once warmed up it'll start all day long, but when it cools off overnight it just does not want to start. Runs fine when it runs, has spark and fuel. Any idea's? Never worked with these types of carbs before.

dyna, muzzy, airbox mods to breath a bit better. Plug reading says jetting is good. Plugged stock ign back in, same result as dynatec. Engine has less than 20 hours since new, compressions test within specs.

try the dyna coils, my 08 starts real quick, I ownly ride on the weekends and it sits all week. I turn the key and it fires right up and then i pull the choke and i don't have to touch the gas pedal at all.

08 teryx--mph on stock guage
bone stock--50mph
Dynatec CDI, aftermarket exhaust tip--56mph
dyna coils, DASA od cover--58mph
no exhaust tip, deleted air box drain plug, removed windshield and roof--61mph
Carolina Mud Dogs cage--??

I won't say it is not valve adjustment but try putting a trickle charger on the battery at night.

To test this theory use jumper cables

Hunter is right Kawis love a good strong battery. What air box mode did you do? you may have lost vacuum to operate the carbs properly. Also maybe tight valves. Good Luck.

Curious why you ask this question? Dyna or stock known to have issues?

Thanks
