Any ideas only happenning once in a while. The kick starter is hanging up at the very top of the stroke,:thumbsup: like it is returning to far I jiggle it a little and then it will push trough?
Oh ya and after it starts it is pure nirvana:thumbsup:
Thanks

Mine does that like it won't kick down. I just move the bike a little. I think it has something to do with the automatic decompression of the engine.

Gotta be something in the AZ water you're drinking! JK!

Mine did the same thing my first ride. All is well now.

Cappy, do you like your Blue scooter better than your Red one?

I sure do! Miss our moto battles!!!
