    Hi all.....my DR is acting up just recently. The kick start seems to be intermittently slipping at kick starting making it very hard to start. Once it does, it barely gets going. Mine is a 1991 and ONLY has kick start/no elect start....so its pretty important i figure this out. I've done the normal stuff like change oil/filter and plug. Still doing it.....any ideas would be appreciated.

    Once it gets started, it runs like a beast. No hesitation, stalling, nothing...

    Thx, Mark
