The key is that you keep in good tune with jetting (which includes air in to exhaust out), valve adjustment, decarbon head with a good plug and of course other minor to major items that keep your motor at the top of the game.
Once you have that in fair control, cycle through the stroke until top dead center on compression is found. Simply the "height of resistance", use the compression release to glide just past. Then full stroke kick.
KEY: You must be in a position that you can apply all your weight to the stroke. Stand on a rock, put it on a kick stand... be planted... Kicking it like the old 2 strokes just ain't gonna happen.
There are tons of articles on kicking 4 strokes... Electric starts are nice, but not necessary. More convience than need.

It took two tries for me to get this right. Make sure you align the cam as described in step one and adjust the valves properly (I made the left valve a little tight, but within spec, because that's the one the cam button opens for decompression). Make sure you check the intake since your in there anyway.
