  3. A Scoopy - cool! For those not familiar with the Scoopy, it combines the best features of the Across, Moto Guzzi and SR500 (storage, linked brakes and a kick starter). Just be careful - 12:1 compression means a kickback could leave you needing an artificial hip. :)

    Seriously - you shouldn't need to slam it down and I don't think that holding the brakes is necessary. I suspect that something else is wrong - was it running and just recently started to give trouble?

  9. Fair Enough!!! I'll eat my words. I'll leave this one up to the kick start and scooter experts. It's just the wording of the thread my knowledge/lack of the scoopy which gave me that suspicious feeling.
