Just wondering as I tested a cr and it took quite a hard kick to turn it over. Maybe no compression release? Thanks.

I had a CR500 01, it has no compression release. I tried a KX500 once and i found it easier to kick over than the CR.

Somewhere around 1990 Honda revised the ports of the 500 a little to help ease the kick start. But neither the CR or the KX have a compression release.
