Default hard engine start

Does anyone know what would cause a hard engine start? would timing have to do with it? I tried setting the timing to my 900 but short of turning it 180 degrees the engine and timing did not respond to any movement of the distributor? is that odd or does the ECU control the timing? It usually takes about 6 - 8 revolutions and then it fires right up? sound like bad plugs maybe?

A non turbo 90 sets timing automatically...

Hard start?

#1 clean battery connections... make the posts on the battery look nice and silver, make the inside of the connectors look clean too.
