I don't know about the engine reving but hard starts have been discussed below. Take a look at http://www.odyclub.com/ubb/Forum2/HTML/000347.html<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by bookierocket:
Two month old 02 EX during the past several weeks takes several turns of the key to start. Wife also says that engine sometimes revs when she's cruising. Any ideas as to what's going on would be appreciated. </font>
Hope this helps.
