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.
Great thread. Same problem here. Guess I'll start looking for parts and pullers. I need to read the kick starting thread. (Backfire nearly took my foot off the other day.)
