Now you have me a trifle nervous, Peter. Can I really break my ankle trying to kick start this thing? In reading the instructions for kick starting in the link (thank you) I am confused at to the "compression release" & "ammeter & piston position", I do not know what this means. thanks for the continued help my friends
You are all scaring the heck out of me. I usually prefer to have the bike on the center stand and kick from beside it. Good luck!
secondly, are there any electric start kits out there, that aren't terribly expensive?Thanks!
First off, Thanks everyone very much for all your help, I can tell this forum will be a great resource in my ownership of the awesome bike that is, Royal Enfield. I live in Pittsburgh, PA so if anyone is around this area, please let me know I'd love to pick your brain about maintenance & such.Quick question about the "decompression lever"- were is it on a 2000 Bullet 500? And, is this something that you do before kicking over?Thanks again for your continued support!Tim
