Default Re: Pull starting a chinagirl

I put a so-called "heavy duty" recoil starter on my HT and it worked great for the first 8 or 10 pulls. Then the rope broke, then the cheap plastic guide cut through to the aluminum. When I replaced the rope the spring broke. The recoil starter on my Huasheng has lasted 4 years with no problem. I wouldn't ride a motorized bicycle without a pull start. There are times when a jump start is not safe.
