Re: ***bike Almost Done, Need Help!!***
x2 what jemma says. You need to have that cable hooked up so you can control the clutch...it's definitely not an on/off kind of thing. Clutch lever pulled in and the bike will pedal almost like normal. Out and it's gonna be hard to pedal and the motor will turn.
I do it a bit different than jemma said. I pick up the back of the bike via the seat and with the clutch out and my other hand on the throttle, "kick" the pedal down to spin the engine and get it to fire. Twist the throttle to keep it going, then pull in the clutch and lock it and let it sit and warm up. Easier to monkey with the choke when you're not riding the bike.
