The XL600 was the only XL I ever got tired kicking, and now that it's sorted it never takes more than a few. The XL185 was a one kick machine always, and the XL250 only took a few easy kicks. The XL's were such wonderful simple machines...

I had a couple of rope-pull start 185 cc 3-wheelers that were the same way. Even though one of them had rings so worn that oil ran out the tailpipe, it still started first pull every time.

I had a Supertrapp spark arrestor exhaust on my XL185 that sounded great on the little thumper. I bet you could find a used one pretty cheap.
