problem starting

i have a 1985 interceptor that once is warmed and turned off, it wont restart. I have to wait for the bike to cool down a bit before restarting. I was told it may be the starter but dont want to just replace parts all willi nilly

There are a couple of group focusing on the 'ceptors; check Yahoo groups for one option. I had an '84 and had the same problem. I pulled carbs, thoroughly cleaned them, replaced all the rubber boots and tubes, and made sure to tighten up all the clamps so there wasn't an issue with air leaks. I also remember having to rebuild my petcock but can't remember if it was a related problem or not.
