Sounds like you have a bad battery.

Good point about the battery. Do u think a bad battery will affect my kick starting???? That stupid kick start is super fickle when cold.

A little. The biggest mistake kicking over a TMX is to use the gas. Don't even hold the twist grip until you are used to it. If it won't kick like that, next time it is warmed up back off the screw on the side of the carb until it idles smoothly.

 

Do you understand the choke positions? It has on, middle and off! I never touch it!

Do you used the choke when bike is cold ?

 

I think the choke is adjusted with the black lever ( just where the thumb is)

 

Also the mixture could be set too low

That isn't a TMX carb. That has a mixture screw. The only external adjustment is the slide stop on a TMX. Mixture is changed by relocating the clip that holds the needle.

When they are set up right it is about the same pressure on the kickstarter as climbing a stair. I usually ride in beach sandals!

Kick back us usually because the twist grip is turned while kicking over.

Don't need to start a new thread so here goes more:

 

1. anyone know where/who does CHROME for pipes, etc....?

2. Oil change for motorcycle is every 2 months?  or 3 months?  or is it better by miles or kilometers?

3. my kick start sucks ARSE when cold......why, why, why.....? (in a nutshell, give it to me)
