I’m an idiot please help. I know im’ going to sound like a complete idiot but here goes… Last weekend I picked up the bike..93’ XR600R , 1st real dirt bike after lots of miles on my 900RR. Anyway.. I kick it and after a few grunts she started up and I went up and down the street and back.. no problems.. felt really odd compared to the street bike but still REALLY COOL… work all week.. blah blah blah… so now I get a chance tonight to go into the garage again and fire her up and nothing… for a start I must have lost all feeling in my leg trying to even kick it… So I as sit here feeling like a total fool I’ll ask….. HOW DO YOU START THIS DARN BIKE… PLEASE HELP.. If I don’t get it running tonight I think my wife is going to jam it up my ass for buying something I cannot even get to running Now the bike has the 640 big bore kit and 41mm Mikuni carb if that makes any difference and this is what I have been trying… 1/ Pull the choke half a notch on the carb. 2/ Turn on fuel 2/ Pull and release the compression leaver.. 3/ kick the bike over.. no gas/little gas/lots of gas...?? 4/ Repeat till you want to cry. 5/ Get ridiculed by wife.. 6/ Return to step one. Now my question is should I have the decompression leaver pull (all the time) when kicking the bike? Seems a lot easer it kick with it pulled in..? I mean when i kick it, it does not even fire.. nothing!!!! Is there anything else I’m missing or is that it and I’m just flooding the bike with such a slow kick due to not having the decompression leaver pulled when I kick it? Do the only run on Sundays?? Im all out of ideas here (and my leg aches) and the couple across the road keep laughing at me out of their front window. I orderd the shop manual but that has nothing on starting.. I have been trying to get a owners manual all week but no luck so if someone can point me to one of them too that would be great.. Anyway, if anyone can help I’ll really appreciate it.. Dave the idiot.
