Kick Starter
Permalink  
 


Hello my TTR 250 starts first time on the button and thats good because when using the kick starter i tend to wear myself out, yesterday after about 12 kicks to no avail i dropped to the floor with pulled leg calf muscles in agony and in tears with pain causing a disturbed nights sleep and unable to walk all day.

Please there must be a secret method of doing this, could anyone out there put me out of my misery and explain what i am doing so wrong.

Thanking you all

Malcolm Woods

Oh me gaud! I've just recently fitted mine and although it does take a few goes, which I think is down to the carb needing sorting a bit more. My technique goes something like this. Wearing big boots! Ignition on, kill switch off, a couple of full twists of the throttle. VERY Slowly turn the engine over with the kickstart til you feel a bit more resistance, ie the piston is at top dead centre. Then simultaneously kick it and open throttle, hopefully it catches! Blip throttle until warm, ta-da. Sometimes work, otherwise start process again 🙄

Google Translate ---- I've been tormenting the week just like you. And once I forgot to pull the suction and start immediately and without the grip. First, slightly overcome the high resistance, kick up and vigorously down. It works well for me.
