"HI I HAVE A 2002 F80 FOUR STROKE YAMAHA, IT STARTS BUT RUNS VERY BADLY ( LIKE A MIS FIRE) AND SOMETIMES WILL STALL WHEN COLD, HOWEVER IF YOU LET IT RUN ROUGH FOR 2/3 MINS SWITCH IT OFF THEN BACK ON IT RUNS FINE !!! MY YAMAHA DEALER SAYS HE THINKS ITS THE PRIME START AT FAULT??? I THINK THIS IS LIKE A CHOKE MECH?? ANY CLUES?? STU THE CODFATHER"
