RE classic 350 shuts down after few seconds of starting. Then it's next to impossible to start either with self or kick starter. Self doesnt make any triggering sound. After kicking turning on and off and trying self for 10-15 minutes, it suddenly starts all well and good. Issue repeats daily. Any diagnosis??

Could be water in the fuel. If there is water in the floatbowl, then it might take the 10-15 minutes of continues starting to get rid of this before the petrol comes into the cylinder and the engine starts. You could try to drain the fuel tank en fill up with quality petrol and clean the carburetor?

Thank you Robert. I'll try that. I've been kick starting the bike daily and it's getting easier. I'll get the carburetor and tank cleaned. Thanks again for the help.
