Does everyone have to engage the throttle a bit when starting the engine from cold?

Recommended Posts

On my EOS 100 and old ROS 125 I am never able to cold start the motor by just pull starting. It either never starts at all, or it starts and shuts down immediately, never going into idle. 

I have to be pull starting and giving it a little bit of throttle at the same time, even if I've primed it correctly. 

- Is giving a bit of throttle when cold starting necessary and expected to have it start and maintain idle?

- If not, what motor do you have? 

- What should I do to get throttle-less starts and idles?
