Normally for the first start of the day I kick it, both to ease the load on the starter motor and to keep my leg in practice. Sometimes I have to resort to the electric leg when I don't get it right and can't be bothered faffing with it any longer.
have you been riding my bike? This problem is exactly what I have and your technique is mine!
God. Family. Motorcycles. Guns. Music. Books. Dogs. Beer. Baseball. Work. That about covers it.
