How to kick start?

Hello

Just wonder if you guys can give me a tip how to kick start my fe650e 2001 mod. when the engine its cold. The dealer started it up at a couple of kicks, and I need more like 50. I assume there is some trick to this.

I would also like to thank the person that give me the answer on my previous question: 600 VS 650, I ended up with the Fe650s. A nice KTM killer...

Thanks

Here is my drill cold.
Pull the choke out.
Pull in the decompression lever.
Kick through 5 complete revolutions, no throttle.
Bring it up to TDC.
Release the decompression lever and kick it like a man.
It usually starts 1st or second kick.
If it does not start by the 3rd kick.
Release the the choke and start over.
It usually starts 1st or 2nd kick.

When warm.
Pull in the decompression lever.
Kick it through 5 times, closed throttle.
Bring it up to TDC
Release the decompression lever and kick it like a man.
It will usually start 1st time, if not repeat entire procedure.

When really Hot.
Same as above but open the throttle on the 5 pre kicks, close throttle to start.

It took me a year and a half of cussing and heavy breathing to come up with this drill.
I hope it works for you.

The best advice I can give is to start the bike on a stand ( when cold ), and I don't mean side stand. This will allow you to concentrate on the kicking action and learn the habits of your motor, as well as training your leg for the action of the lever, which is certainly awkward at first. once you learn " the routine " of your motor then starting when standing will become much easier.

best of luck

Thank you guys

That was helpful, now i can start it it only 10 to 15 kicks. I think my problem was that i was off TDC. Now I need only more practice...

Karl,
The critical motion is to follow through. Don't cut your kicks short. Get as high up starting the kickstart shaft at approximately 1:00 o'clock and follow through to 6:00. Maintaining a strong and steady push through 4 and 5 o'clock is crucial.

javo,
The above advise is neither year or model specific. It should be good for all. The best advise would be to get the starting procedure from the previouse owner.
