Batteries always spin it real quick but i think the oil is just to thick to get it goin... I will try a jump later i guess to see if that helps.... Stock tune better or worse??

Had the same problem this morning with mine. Put the stock tune back in and she fired up just fine, idled like crap for about 5 minutes, but started nonetheless.
