    Anyone figured out the trick to starting a shindaiwa T2500 4-stroke when warm. If I give it much throttle or choke it then forget it. My best luck has been when giving a little throttle over idle. Maybe I have it idled too low. Does anyone else have another suggestion.

    I Have never had a problem with starting mine warm. Dont hold the trigger , sometimes i think that makes it worse, its hard to go back to doing things for a four stroke when all your used to is two strokes. Try not choking it as well.
    Good luck

    Thanks. I guess I needed to be reminded that this doesn't have same characteristics as 2 cycle even though we mix oil. I will try moving the idle screw up slightly and using no trigger.
