Customer Question

I have 2011 25 hp honda that will not start unless gas or starting fluid is ijected into the carbs. Once engine is warm runs great. I instaled new fuel modulator enrichner to no avail after repeated cranking plugs are dry so seems to be a choke issue. I have taken it to amechanic who has cleaned the carbs. Still no results. When motor is first started it kicks over for about 5 seconds then quits. Motor has very few hours on it used only in fresh water.
