You stomp till you're silly on the kick starter and pull in the clutch and drop down into first. Accelerate and clutch- shift into second...etc. If its night time you turn on the head light. You have an HRD Vincent and are asking these questions?Right pappy, I forgot. I had a Velocette MSS 500 and priming (tickling in proper british ) was all important. No tickle - no go.

Bill forgot to mention that you have to prime the carbs first.I have the same question as he does though. If you own rides like these how can you not know how to operate them?I'll be glad to take either or both off your hands.
