I am having to keep the Choke open at start-up until the oil temperature is the 'green' or the engine stops. Thereafter, the engine runs fine. Also when restarted after a flight, the engine starts with the throttle cracked open and no Choke. Aircraft is hangared and outside temperature between 10 - 20 degrees C.

Is this normal with a Rotax 914UL? If not, what are the likely problem(s)?

Many thanks

Lucien

sounds like it is too lean at idle, maybe a small induction leak or idle screw not at 1.5 turns from bottom?
