That sucks, you do realise they are and always have been an utter bastard to start if you havent learned how.

Just the right choke, just the right swing, just the right everything and she will be running before the kicker hits the stop.

My mate ran an xbr500 for years and that was the same, his standing reply to anybody who wanted a go was "sure, all you gotta do is start it". First time every time for him, nobody else could even when he told us how.

Use the force and figure her out. Try the xt forums, or thumper talk, both of those groups are rife with big single yams.

My mate had one back in the day, and could kick it first time every time. Leap forward 40yrs, fk me where did that go, and he bought another to relive his yoof. Takes all his effort to start it now

Today was magic- a little carb adjustments and i believe the line to the kill switch was loose so maybe that was the issue. easy kicks and up and running. hope tomorrow is as magically. I don't feel so fucking old now.
