cheers moby, tried to get hold of ya earlier, been kicking the see you next tuesday out of it an its not to happy, plus my leg looks like its been shagged by a pitbull with a rough sex fetish i guess ive not got the hang off the black magic art of booting these things over yet,
someone slap me an tell me what im doing wrong
kicking it from cold, no throttle, choke on, all the way down then back up for the click, then jumping on the kick to the bottom, i dont know what it is im doing but its not going, the only times it has fired it has been off the choke an after a fair few few kicks, someone slap me an tell me what im doing wrong

You should all be tellling him the technique to start the thing as there is fack all wrong with the bike. settings etcEven ive started it....with the kickstart too
After I told you where it was and what they do
Sometimes the vibrations or a good knock can undo and de-adjust stuff though. That wall on the NMRO certainly adjusted my berg, couldn't start it after the impact.
cheers for all the advice fella's, had it started <after 45 minutres of hard kicking> rode it for about 3 miles an it cut out while being rev'd an would not start, second time its done that, havent a clue what im doing wrong as im following moby's advice to the letter, thinking maybe theres sumit nasty floating around in the carb so ive run it into DHR<cut out on a busy roundabout on the way there > cant hurt can it, oww an i forgot to get the beers in at the start of the thread so the next two are on me
