I don't believe so, why do you ask?

Nope, cause not many could kick it over!!!! and would break your leg or throw you off if it kicked back.

The White Bros cam I put in my '86 years ago, specified to disable the automatic decompression linkage. Since it didn't have the manual one either, it was a good boot to get going, but the thing always started if you knew how to do it. Kept friends from riding it, too....."Can I take your bike for a ride?" Sure, if you can start it, you can ride it. Never had one ask twice...
