Are you following the strick starting ritual?

1. Pull in the decomp lever

2. Kick it over a few times

3. Find top dead center (It will feel a little harder to kick when you get to this point)

4. Kick it down about an inch past when it starts to feel harder (Just past Top Dead Center)

5. Let go of the decomp lever

6. Let the kick starter rise to the top.

7. Kick as hard and fast as you can.
