Try holding the decomp lever and hold the throttle wide open. Kick thru several times. Then, what I've found works best, release the decomp and kick from TDC and wick the throttle open at the bottom of the kick.

Oh, in case you didn't know, the XR needs to be kicked from TDC every time. If you try kicking the engine over at any place else in the stroke, its a wasted effort.
