Wow. I had no idea they were so fragile. I disconnected the decompression lever 10 years ago on my XL600, and kicked it hard ever since. Maybe someone who has trouble tuning would be better served by an XL350?

With that in mind, I don't think I'll add a backup kick starter to the DR. I should probably upgrade the skid plate too, huh?
