It runs very well but is a beast to kick over, as expected. With the large displacement, high compression and generous squish bands, this was expected. I would say it is at the limit of what one should plan on kick starting. Luckily, the Pazon Special Ignition produces four big fat blue sparks at very low kickover speed, which is all I can manage. Starting on the rear cylinder is the only way to get it to roll thru a compression stroke. I managed to turn the kickstart into a pretzel when the bike kicked back lightly after getting too much fuel in the cylinders. So please excuse the very ugly modified kicker, it is not my finest work. It is braced up with webs fore & aft and will do fine until I build a sleeker version this winter.
