Question about 2005 KTM 640 LC4 SM
Good engine , loads of compression,sometimes have to flick the decompressor to start off the button. very nasty to kick start,nearly guaranteed to kick back.
I dont know what your timing is relevant to flicking the compression switch and kicking, but get the engine to the compression stroke and then as you go to kick it hard, flick the switch at that moment. timing is everything. i had an old yamaha tt 500 that kicked back so hard my foot slipped off the kick start and kick lever came up and took the skin off my shin.. it took quit a bit of time to get the timing but once i did, it was easy.. hope this helps.
