I was sitting at a RR crossing with the wife on the back and dcided to shut it off for a bit. The temp needle was about 1/8 inch to the right of the middle mark. We sat for about 5 minutes and when I restarted, it didn't want to... took about 3 tries to get going. That episode happend twice that day.

Once going it was fine and didn't act up after that. Had mid grad fuel at about 1/8 tank. I decided to go back to premium.

Any ideas?

When it's warm out many LT's seem to have symptoms of vapor lock when their hot. Just crack the throttle a little when restarting the LT.

What John said...

When touring and it's really hot, mine does the same thing at fuel stops. I would just turn the ignition ON, crack the throttle open then close it before hitting the starter button. That seemed to cure the whole issue.
