Suzuki df 115 starting problem

Hi Guys,
Does anyone out there have any advice on this ? My Suzuki DF 115 has been a reliable engine but has recently developed a problem in starting, it needs 4-6 attempts at full throttle to get it under way.I have added a fuel conditioner to the the petrol tank/recharged battery/primed the fuel bulb but none of these makes a difference.
Once going it does run very nicely,however once stopped it still needs the full throttle and a few attempts to get going again...all suggestions appreciated..


Regards Woodski

Check the connections from the ignition and killcord to the main loom, pull apart the push fit connectors and check for white corrosion. While your there, check as many of the connectors as you can, especially if you find any corrosion

Df115

Engine had plugs changed this winter and had had a service spring of last year with about 30 hours of use for last season .Runs okay after it has started which made me suspect fuel .Will give the electrics a look and once over with WD 40 .
