Building up compression in motor?

Recommended Posts

I have no clue if this is total bs or if it is actually a point- pushing on your kickstarter a little bit a few times builds up compression in the motor which makes it harder to start but starts easier?If this is bs can somebody explain how somebody could think of this? thanks.

They are prolly just trying to get some gas in the jug so it starts easier.

yeah, it pumps oil in by the cylinder (so it obviosly goes up and down easier) and probably gas too. I haven't heard of it making the compresion more though :thumbsup:

I wonder if they are talking about finding top dead center with the kick starter?

He got it. ^ I believe they are talking about kick it slowly a few times untill you can find the TDC. This makes the bike start easier.

Alright thanks guys, I just couldn't seem to believe that pushing on your kickstarter would do anything.
