ENGINE START (TXC)
Make sure the fuel tap is in the OPEN position, then shift gear
pedal in neutral position.
Pull the starter knob (BLACK knob (2) for cold starting*, RED
knob (3) for warm starting), pull the clutch control lever, then
press the engine start button (1).
Release the clutch control lever.
*: after a prolonged inactivity of the motorcycle or in presence
of a low external temperature.
Though the engine is provided with an automatic decompressor,
can be necessary, in some cases (carburetor flooding or starting
difficulties due to a battery inadequate charge), to use the manual
starting decompressor on the L.H. side of the handlebar. In these
cases, pull the lever (5) whilst simultaneously pressing the starter
button, release the lever (5) keeping the button pressed and af-
terwards release the latter as well.
In order to adjust the lever decompressor free play (approximately 3
mm- 0.12 in.), the lever holder is provided with the adjuster (6); the
adjustment can be also effected with the tightener (7) on the R.H.
side of the engine (use this tightener if it is not possible to obtain the
correct free play with the adjuster on the handlebar).
