Hi, Have just bought T25 1915cc. Believed to have electronic ignition, auto choke. Is there a correct method of starting from cold? As I am having slight problem starting from cold in mornings Thanks PETE

Should start ok if the auto choke is working.

Press the accelerator pedal down once to engage the choke then start the engine.

Or if you are really desperate read the instruction manual. :)

If you've just bought it, as a matter of course I'd change plugs, leads & dizzy cap. I'd also check the choke flap is closed when cold. If a peirburg carb, take off the pancake top air intake (3x 10mm bolts) & check the choke flap is closed. Not fully, it should be slightly open - about a 3mm gap. Depressing the accelerator re-sets the choke when cold.
