I'll try and make this fool proof:Using very light, slow pressure, press the kick start lever with your foot. When the piston is traveling "up to" or "down past" TDC there will be little resistance on the kick start lever and will move freely. Continue to lightly and slowly move the kick start lever until it requires force to move it any further, you are now JUST BEFORE TDC. Give a quick 1/4 kick, NOT A FULL KICK OF THE LEVER, call it a "nudge" and it should put the piston right where you need it.Scottie
I do know that my kick starter slips sometimes, and when it does, I always slam my knee into the side of the bike
