Xr600 Starting Drill Video

Recommended Posts

Just a quick video showing how to use the decompression lever. It would apply to any bike with a decomp lever though.

Conditions:

Connecticut, 30 deg F, bike was off for 24 hours.

Not a bad little clip.

At least it shows that you don't have to kick the piss out of it to start it

I've got the same ´86 model and I tried to start it today, 40F.

It's been sitting since october and it was a bitch to start...

I've removed my decompression lever though, I just find the TDC or little after and give it a kick. When warm it starts fairly easy now, replaced the stator last fall.

Nice vid man!

Awesome! That's why I made the video. It's almost impossible to explain to someone but easy to show in a video. Now you'll be starting it sitting down.
