i have a VN S1 and i have had a constant staring problem!
the car will start straight away in the mornings no problem.. but if i drive it and then stop for 10 min..ill go to start it again and it will crank about 6 times then start and blow black smoke.. she neva blows black smoke on me.. then if i turn it off and start it again it will start straight away... :bang:

i have changed :cry:........... get ready for it!

Crank angle sensor, coil pack, new leads, new plugs, i have done a carbon flush, fuel filter replaced, fuel regulator replaced, starter motor replaced, and had the battery checked and had the fuel pump replaced about 5 months ago.......:bang::bang::bang:

i am begging :bow: for help please anything... its doing my head in...

Definitely leaky injectors in my opinion. If you leave it sitting long enough the fuel will dry up and it you start it again straight away it wont have leaked much. Somewhere in the middle then that's where you have problems
