Sounds familiarOriginally posted by baron@Mar 8 2004, 06:38 PM
id cry if that happened to mine
man lay off that throttle....its called the recoil when u hit the throttle and kick it over the same time the motor starts to cycle at a high RPM which causes the kick starter to come flying back...plan n simple...mine starts just fine one kick everytime "without throttle"Originally posted by M3zy6@Mar 7 2004, 05:53 PM
This is what happens when you hold the throttle in when your trying to kick start it.
Don't do it!
It has something to do with the compression kicking back when it is wide open throttle.Originally posted by dan450@Mar 23 2004, 10:16 PM
HOw would giving it gas be any different than choking it? Seems like both shoot the RPMs up?
Oh, thats crazy then, I heard the incident, or atleast one was WOT, I'll be hell-sure not to touch the throttle at all when starting it.Originally posted by TRX450rlude@Mar 25 2004, 12:09 AM
Also for your info. It has nothing to do with WOT....it can happen by simply touching the throttle.....just dont ever give it gas until it fires and you will be fine....
How do you know if you are on the compression stroke?? Sorry, the only thing I have kicked over is my buddy's KX100 a few times...Originally posted by sethg@Mar 28 2004, 04:12 PM
Hey if you arent on the right stroke, yes it will kick back, break your leg, break the case, etc. If you are on the compression stroke (like you should be) you can give it all the gas you want and it shouldnt kick back.
