I thought this would be helpful for any new Honda XL500 or XR500 motorcycle owners. See it at www.hoohoohoblin.com The bike doesn’t want to start unless you do everything right, and if you make a mistake you can really hurt your foot. I demonstrate proper cold kickstarting procedure in flip-flops to prove it’s safe and easy to start once you know how to do it. When I first got the bike, I was afraid to go anywhere on it, and even stalled it in traffic and had to push it to the sidewalk because I couldn’t get it started again. Hope you never have to go through that, or the chronic sore instep of the improper kicker. The Honda XL500R motorcycle was designed so that you can kick start it in gear with the clutch pulled in, or in neutral without pulling in the clutch.
