Newbie can't start bike!

4 posts in this topic

I've just bought a really old XL600R Supermoto.

I've never owned a single before and I can't get the hang of kick starting it.

The previous owner disabled the decrompression lever by grinding the end off!

He had no trouble starting it but he wieghs 18 stonne.

I've ordered a new part but I want to ride it now.

My knee is sore, whats the secret?

Oh yeh - they are different - wait untill you come storming out of a corner in third gear with the front wheel in the air! No need to spool up like the multi cylinder bikes.
