Had a little fun with my older brother recently. He's two years older than myself and has always felt this need to outdo me. He's not a dirt biker at all, but after seeing my YZ426 for the first time, decided he could ride that b**ch. I told him that if he could start it, he could ride it(he he he he). Since I always leave it at TDC, I knew he wouldn't be able to push it through the stroke. He jumped on the bike and went to give a manly kick....and nearly broke his leg. He tried a couple of more half-hearted stabs at the kickstarter and declared that the engine was seized. (He he he he). I took over and diverted his attention to the kickstarter while I secretly held in the compression release while slowly moving past TDC. With one fell swoop, the monster roared to life. I hit the kill switch and told him to try again. Same thing...couldn't do it. I didn't want him riding it anyway. Jeez, I love that 12.5:1 compression ratio with no automatic release!
