Hi All! might be my first post, not sure. Anyway, I had an xs 650 back in the eighties, various other more modern motorcycles for the last thirty years, now I'm back with my first love. Question, How the hell do you kick start these bastards? I never was good at it with my old XS, I'd usually just push start it, because it was so easy. uh, important stuff, 75 xs650, banshee permanent magnet, 19.99 ignition system, no battery, capaciter/ no starter. new top end. Using 2-1 ceramic manifold from,,, forgot, he's on here though, and a mikuni 36mm carb. all the ignition has just been gone through and re-checked/re-wired/replaced. My buddies, who all ride kick start only bikes can start this bike with one or two kicks, while I wheez and kick and kick and kick and bitch and kick...... School me please.
