    Hard to start yz490

    Just got back from riding the monster from hell, checked kickstart and if you dont blead it past top dead center at bottom of kick then let the kicker come back to top .you will not get a full kick.Also the lay bike over til gas comes out almost guarantees a first or second kick start.Thank you all for the ideas they all work but tipping the bike over definitely works best in my situation. And a an extra thanks to the kx500boi
