Put on a Compression release and relax when starting  grin

The four stroke engine: That's one stroke for producing power and three for wearing the engine out.

This technique has worked for me like a charm. Even worked when my bike was in storage for two years (no maintenance), started up on the third kick! Gas on, choke on, kicker all the way up, throttle completely closed. Kick down very slowly, at around half way you will feel a "click" for lack of a better term. Once you feel it "click", take the kicker back up all the way and jump on it like you mean it! I have started many big-bore two strokes very successfully with this technique!

all i ever do is pill the choke up turn the fuel on ,ir visa versa. normally as long as i get a full from the top (push the kicker until its pressure is tight all the way to the top). then kick like she deserves it. i dont think i even turn the throttle. maybe slightly. once she starts i reach diwn and turn off the choke .then once i can feel the pipe getting warm i start giving her some slow revs. sometimes it makes it easier to have something to lean up against on the left side of the bike so you can really stand into the kick all the way.i hear a lot of comments about how much leg it takes to start a k5 or dont try it with your tennis shoes on. honestly ,the k5 has been the least kick to start bike ive ever owned. if i remove the carb the first start afterward can take maybe three kicks to go. otherwise i cant remember having to kick mire than once to fire.hope this helps

I lean my 91' on my hip let fuel flow out of the overflow of the carb, put it in 2nd gear rock it back and fourth a few times, choke it and kick it.  2nd kick everytime  grin

I found this on a site about a Lambretta with a KX500 engine.

I know what you mean, starting a KX 500 is a real pain in the ass for sure. So I have addressed this by fitting a small manual de-compressor. I won't take all the credit for the idea, I stole the idea from the KX riders forum. They do a little mod where they weld a small boss to the head and drill a 2mm hole into the combustion chamber. The de-compessor is off a large chainsaw. They fit them to large chainsaws to prevent pull cords snapping. You simply push it in and start the engine, when the engine starts the de-compressor snaps shut.

Hi guys, the de-compessor was off E-bay, less than 10 deliverd. It has a M10x 1.0 thread on it which is a standard thread for brake parts like banjos etc. I had a tap anyway. Snapping kickstarts is another reason to fit one. A kickstart for this engine is 90 + vat form Kawasaki.
