Yes, it is reasonable.
But have you thought that the motor runs without oil not just for 1-2 sec but for more?
That may cause problems that can not be seen now....but after some thousand of miles

You keep the choke even if the motor can fire up without the help of the choke???
I thought that the choke is used only when the motor can not fire up...for example because of cold weather.

It was too easy.

But you have to spent about 4000 to 3000 Euros to make it look like this (not only for the looking...but to gain hp from 55-60 to 75 and from 750cc go at 840cc)
