Default Re: Pull starting a chinagirl

I still pulled mine over with a quick pull which would start it on first-time pull most of the time but I never jerk the rope and cause a lot of shock to the mechanics of the pull starter because that is what will break things and cause premature wear on all the small metal parts on these little pull starter, if they're handled right I think they do just fine but I think most people that have trouble with them are just to rough and try to use them as a yank starter instead of a pull starter, you are correct Theon, you cant get rough like you can with an old lanmower, just pull the rope until you feel the dawgs engage and then give it a good smooth pull at a medium speed and if the engine is tuned right it will pop off in one to two pulls in my experience.

I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
