Ok, this is probably the millionth post about this....but I have read tips and I can still not get it started. Yesterday I was starting it fine, usually on the second or third kick....but today I can't do anything. I pull the compression, kick about 4/5 times, engage the hot start (do I need to do that?), find TDC, and kick while releasing the compression....? I am taking it slow and being patient, yet my foot is terribly bruised, and my left index finger is rubbed/bruised. Advice? It's an '01 by the way. Thanks!
