A kick start on a dirt bike is explained in detail here.
- When the kick start lever is depressed, the engine is forced to flip over, and the engine should begin to operate. The advantage of using a kick start on a dirt bike rather than an electric start is that the bike will be significantly lighter.

How do you kickstart a dirt bike easily?
For dirt bikes, the standard procedure for starting them is as follows:
- Turn the gas valve/petcock to the on position. Press/turn the ignition/key to the on position. Activate the choke (for carbureted motorcycles)
- Get on your dirt bike and ride about. Don’t even think of touching the gas pedal just yet. Step by step, turn the starter over to ensure that the engine is free to spin and that it has reached TDC (more on this later)
Why is it so hard to kickstart my dirtbike?
As soon as the pilot jet becomes blocked, it becomes useless in supplying required fuel to the engine, and starting the bike becomes exceedingly challenging. Another factor that might contribute to difficulty starting a motorcycle is an old spark plug. Due to the age and wear of the plug, it is less likely that the spark will be strong, making it more difficult to ignite the mixture.
Why is my kickstart not catching?
It is most likely that your battery is dead if your motorbike will not start with a kick start and will not start with the electric starter as well. To get your bike moving quickly, hold the clutch wire while shifting down to first gear, pushing the bike forward, then releasing the clutch after the bike has gained some momentum.
How many kicks should it take to start a dirt bike?
It takes between 5 and 10 kicks.

How do you start a flooded bike?
After discovering that your motorbike engine has become submerged, the first step you should take is to turn off the engine and wait at least 15 minutes before attempting to start it. This will allow the gasoline that has accumulated inside the engine to evaporate and/or drain from the engine.

Do you have to hold the clutch when starting a dirt bike?
Although dirt motorcycles may be started while in gear, this is only recommended for riders with greater expertise. It is preferable for a novice rider to begin by shifting the bike into neutral. When a bike is in neutral, you will be able to tell because it should roll while you are holding the clutch. After a few repetitions of moving into neutral, it becomes second nature.
Why is there no kickstart in bikes?
Due to the fact that fuel injector motorcycles have a submersible pump in the gasoline tank that requires a minimum of 9V power to work, fuel injector bikes do not come with a kick start. There is no use in delivering a kick to bikes when they are not being used to start them since the kick does not provide the voltage that is necessary for them to run.
How do you start a 2 stroke flooded dirt bike?
THE TROUBLE BEGINS Get a friend (or two) to help you push the bike to its maximum speed. Then, with the clutch engaged, move the bike into second gear (third on a large bore) and release the clutch lever. Once the bike begins to churn, keep it going until you can clear the flooded gas out of the engine compartment. To clean the plug, you should ride it about for a few minutes.
