I dont use the throttle to help start it as they have a mechanical fuel pump, and use the decomp lever. The method in which i use to start it goes like this... fuels on, chokes out, kick down till i get some resistance, engage decomp lever, kick down a further poofteenth, release lever and give it a boot. It doesnt even give a hint of wanting to fire. The only thing i have done since purchasing the bike is add a tank of premium fuel and a new plug.... what are your thoughts?
Leave the choke OFF. Pull the hot start button. Make sure youre kicking on the compression stroke.

this is an old thread!

Goutman eventually got it worked out - it all comes down to that difficult to learn technique
