If the Riv sits for over 5 hours it starts right up... Same goes for if it sits for less than 1.5 hours. Anything in between and it will most likely take a bit of firing to get going. I'm thinking this could be a few different culprits:

-fuel tank leakdown
-fuel pressure regulator

Seems odd though.... If the tank had an issue, I figure it would start pretty hard the longer it sits.. Anything I might be missing here? I've got a few FPRs laying around that I will try to swap out tomorrow to see if that helps. After that... I ain't touching it. lol censor

Leaky injectors? Takes a while to flood the cylinder, then a while longer for it to evaporate... my best guess...
