I've used this starting technique, and it works, but there is a learning curve. The running bike has to be spinning really fast (as I recall we ended up in 4th gear or so) or the non-running bike just stalls it out. Also, I heard from one member on here who used this technique, got the running bike spun up real fast, and then dropped his bike into first gear which promptly broke the first gear in the bottom end. Much worse than just a stalled bike.

Match the gears on the two bikes, and have the stalled bike in gear with the clutch in while spinning it up with the running bike.

I was thinking I could have used this technique to quickly pump the water out of my motor (with the spark plugs out) instead of draining my battery with all the cranking...
