Well I'm sure THAT has nothing to do with not starting or running right.

With that, I think I'm done.

I had to chuckle at the nitros comment myself. That's a pretty big deal when you overwork every moving part on the bike, the possabilities of where your problems may lie are endless. I don't know much about racing, or performance upgrades at all, but I would not buy a bike that has or previously had a NOS kit. Good luck.

Ive been asking to all my friends who have use bikes for years, all they say that it is normal to let the bike temperature to cool down after a long ride, then it will have no problem starting up.

Do you guys think its normal ??

4 stroke engines can be much harder to start when they are hot. Any dirt biker should know this. It is possible that your bike has this idiosyncrasy. You should check for a newsgroup for your particular bike and see if this is common. You could also carry a can of starting fluid.

NO. For a fuel injected bike, that is NOT normal.

Of course, with the "tinkering" that you say the previous owners have done with your bike, it is likely that nothing about it is "normal" anymore.
