you dont want to ever give it gas while you are kicking it over....dont even touch the gas....thats what causes it to kick back on you.

are you using the hot start button...when its already hot of course. You dont want to choke if the engine is already warm.

because the 450r's carb automatically pumps fuel in to start it without having to give it any gas, if you've done this on an electric start quad you may of never noticed it, mabey a backfire.

I knew all that ( i never choke when its warm ) but with every quad electric/kick and DB electric/kick i always gave it a bit of gas and its funny cause i would only try to give it gas after kicking it a few times and it would start right up when i give it gas and just curious did anyone change their idle from stock cause it does idle pritty low
