    730 cold start

    Having an issue with cold start up.this thing will turn over forever before it starts up in the cold,and then when it starts it will spit and spudder,and then it's ok after that.i would think fuel injection would start right up and run very smooth.what would cause this,and is anyone else having this problem.

    What have you tried? Have you tried to cycle the glow plugs several times? Is your fuel treated for winter temps. Check the simple things first.

    How old is the machine? When was the last time you ran carb cleaner through it? When was the last time you changed the spark plugs and wires? Air filter? How old is the gas?

    Sorry about that. How old is the gas and do you treat it with anything like stable? I'm wondering if you are still having a fuel issue. Do you keep the fuel tank full all the time? If the tank is not full at creates a good environment for condensation. With the constant cooling and warming the water will condense out and freeze possibly plugging a fuel line.

    My X720 acts about the same in the cold. I throttle up to 1/2 - 3/4 throttle, turn the key until the fuel pump quits, then crank 'er up. Yes, I think it should start faster but I think these Kawasaki engines are just that way. It never fails to start and run though. If you think it's a problem, take it back to the dealer and see what they say.

    The engines run very lean to meet regulations. Even though they are EFI they still stumble and cough when cold, my X728 did the same thing.

    Yes I called the dealer,they are picking it up next week.this thing is brand new I would think it would start right up,that's how fuel injection works.if this is normal then I want my carb back.i payed 600 dollars for this thing to start right up,not sit there and listen to it crank and crank and crank over.i will keep you up to date,when I get it back

    I have been doing a cold start every morning this week,the tractor takes 5 to 6 seconds everytime to start.if this is normal,then it does not act like any efi that I have had.it acts more like a carb engine.this engine should start right when you hit that key.im going to call kawaski this week and talk to them,before the dealer takes it.

    The dealer had a chance to check it out,and said the same thing as Adamq had said
    The engines run very lean to meet regulations. Even though they are EFI they still stumble and cough when cold, my X728 did the same thing.They said in the cold this is normal behavior for these machines.im just so glad there is nothing wrong,this is a great running machine it really blows the snow.i hope to have it for the next twenty years.i do hate the soft cab I got from john Deere for 650 dollars it's just cheap,and I hate it.so this year I'll be looking at other options.does anyone know where I can find a used hard cab to fit the x730.
