I had read all of the pointers, the guy I got the bike off showed me how to start it. Man did I ever have difficulties. Warmed the bike up, dead start off the line ten minutes later. Couldnt get it to fire, took fifteen minutes finally got a bump start from offiicials. Only to have it happen when I stalled it 15 minutes later. Think I have it down now that I started it 40 or so times yesterday. Aside from getting stronger legs... I need too..Open the hot start valve, kick through once, then find high center and go through steps. I am now in the 400 club just wat to be able to start it easily cause I found I went alot slower for fear of it dying and having to start it, which in turn caused me to stall it more.
