Is standing next to your KTM to kick it with your right foot kind of like sitting to piss?
I had a XR400 which need a ritual with the decomp, right hand on the cross bar so no trace of throttle until it fired, etc.
I've had no problem kicking my 640, and I have not been so precise about the process.
Clearly some thumpers have more tolerance than others.
Never had a virago. It's my name.
