I tried last night in the garage to start my bike, just to hear it . My bike is stock except for a Yosh exhaust, opened up air box and it runs really well, but I just can't get the kicking procedure right. I spent at least 20 minutes kicking with no luck. PJ is a 62 with a MJ 160. I was using a 65 and 68 PJ before when riding in the Palm Springs area, (which is about 1000 ft above sea level and here in L.A. its about 400 ft above sea level) but experiencing "flame out" afew time. So with the recommendations from some members here I lowered the PJ. Would that much difference in elevation matter? Anyway, knowing exactly when the piston is TDC or just pass is becoming diffultcult. thanks in advance for any suggestions.
