I had a C for the summer and fall of 2009 and mostly started it by hand since the charging system did not work. It was pretty easy to start but it did kick back fairly regularly. Just don't put your thumb around the handle or get your body in the path of the handle and only turn the engine 1/4 turn at a time and you should be okay. Zach

My 18yr old daughter starts hers regularly, it is crank handle only and she is not a big girl.
Fuel on One or two compressions with the choke on and magneto earthed out (depending how cold) Then choke off, give it a heave and it starts right up. When she's at a show and playing games etc it nearly always starts with one pull on the crank. Go on, get it and enjoy it! Rex
