One thing that I will add though, holding about 1/5-1/4 throttle while kicking will usually help quite a bit when kick starting hot or cold.
wildbill - it could be yours!
Not on a fuel injected UCE.They don't like to have their throttle open at all when they start.Using the Bi-Starter lever when the engine is cold will sometimes help them start better though.
But it's not a UCE. Is it?
Did we determine that the manual bi-starter (what does that name mean?) is the functional equivalent of opening the throttle a little bit?
I know, I know. I shouldn't be posting my bike here in this section. But for oddball stuff like this, this section just has so much more action. Hell, I was just trying to exploit how good my bike sounds. LMAO Scottie
What a sound! Dude, your neighbors must either love you or hate you...
Your bike is absolutely beautiful and makes sounds you can't buy anymore. I just gotta ask, what is a bike like yours worth? Thanks for sharing.
