    I can kick start my bike now!
    Got a new 36 tooth sprocket, removed my broken shifter and put my regular bike chain on the lowest gear. No more annoying petal starts!

    On a side note, clean your chains. All the goop is from both my chains.

    Silicone bike chain spray. I could find the brand if needed.

    I have yet to be able to kick mine over. Stock kit, stock sprocket.

    Did the 36 tooth sprocket help you obtain the ability to kick start it?

    Honestly I don't know. I believe moving my regular bike chain to the lowest gear and ditching the shifter (mine was messed up from spilling the bike months ago) is what really made it easy.

    Also, sometimes motors like to start easier than others. My friends 66cc motor would literally always start up from spinning the back tire once. He had no petal-side chain so he couldn't petal start. His motor was stock although we did increase the compression a bit.
