Something would have to be seriously wrong if I let it sit for 1-2 weeks! :)

Alright, I am armed and ready for my second attempt at riding it tonight. Everyone keep your fingers crossed for me.

I really like this website, you guys really have helpful insight.

What worse: Coming up short on a 75+ foot double or getting high sided at 100+?

I should probably ask Jean Micheal Bayle.

By the way, until ya get the total hang of it, grab the master cylinder instead of the throttle while your kicking it. The inadvertant blip is the killer of the start cycle. And if ya feel like you need to start over, Just twist the throttle wide open and hold it, pull the compression release and kick it about a dozen times all the way through. It should be dry inside by then, and should start no problem. If you have access to race gas, your starting issues will decrease even more. The bike doesnt have to have it, but sure does like it. Enjoy your new thumper.
