'67 xlh, mag, cv, 10:1, andrews cams

cold:
-retard mag
-5 squirts
-enricher on full
-kick 3-4 times until puff of smoke from carb
-2 squirts
-bring #1 to comp stroke and kick it like ya mean it

if the mag advances, limp around cussing while your ankle swells

warm: retard mag, bring to compression, one squirt and kick.

warm or cold, if there's a hot girl within sight, add "kick 45 times" and "pick self up from in front of the bike after it kicks back"

The four Linkert bikes I've owned:

-Key off
-Retard
-Three kicks at full choke
-Compression stroke
-1/3 advance
-Key on
-Kick
-Bike starts

If it doesn't work that way, the timing is off of the valves are too tight. Often the latter, I've found.

GBL carb no acc pump, pan shovel, sifton 590, 10.5-1 comp.

key off, 1/4 advance, choke 3 clicks on, 2 draw thru kicks w/ throttle slighty open.
