Newbie here - picked up an 83 XL600R about a month ago, but it's sat virtually unused because it's nigh impossible to start without the ever present fear of having my right knee snapped backwards or slow death from a heart attack. have had a fair share of vintage Honda twins and fours, but this is my first thumper -have never had to deal with compression release before. No choke cable on the bike, but that didn't keep the prior owner from starting this thing first kick each time, even when cold. If you had to describe to a dim-bulb like me how to successfully start one of these things, how would you go about it.? Help, please!
