Bump start help
So i was working on some things left the key in the on position, went inside, came back out and the battery was dead.
I tried bump starting it and nothing would work.
Second gear, key on, run position. Get up some speed and pop it with a little gas.
Also tried with the choke on.
Also tried with someone on the back thinking some weight over the rear could help
Also tried first gear
It sounds so close but just wont complete the start.
Once I pop the clutch do i need to bring it back in really soon?
Is there anything i need to avoid doing so i dont hurt the bike?
Can you jumpstart a bike like a car with a car?
Anything to worry about?
Do a search....There were a few threads a while ago that covered the jumpstart from a car question.

Hehe, I should be a pro at bump starting by now...
2nd gear, make sure your petcock is open, key turned on, choke out, hold the clutch in, get rolling a bit, pop the clutch out and as soon as the engine kicks pull the clutch back in and give it some gas to keep it running and that should be all...
you can jump start a bike from a car just make sure the car isnt running, but make sure the bike is in neutral for this one
don't forget the ignition switch..

Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs. TwinBrosRacing
