Suggestions on how to prime?
Got it started with a little gas straight in to the spark plug hole. Even with that it took a few kicks with each one the "cough" of it trying to start got a little better until it fired up. After that, one good kick would get it going.

Took it around the neighborhood for a couple of laps. Been longer than I realized since I rode a similar bike given the feel. Going to be fun though!

Thanks for all the help.
