    Give me a week or two for the rib to be sorted (and time to fit an ignition system that gives a decent spark despite feeble kicking) and you're on cheers

    Had that on a beta trails, turned out the ignition was too far advanced, and would fire before the piston hit TDC sending it back in reverse, kickstart nealy took my foot off when it fired ><
