@ upweekis For those who have kick start 600s, what is your cold start ritual?

Pretty much the same technique as Big Ed,although if mine's not been used all week it can take a few kicks to fire.If it's been used in the previous couple of days it usually fires up in a couple of kicks.Always slowly kick it over until you feel the piston just go over TDC then give it full choke, NO throttle and a strong kick.You do'nt need to be built like a gorrila to fire it up I'm only about 145 pounds and it works for me.
When it's warm the bikes so easy to start sometimes it fires up when I'm still trying to get to TDC
thump thump thump!
