Starting my MAXI on the centerstand is impossible

I can't get my MAXI started on the centerstand...there is way too much compression when I pull the lever and my pedals stop in less than 1/2 a turn. What's the trick??

Quit pulling the brake lever.if the compressions that good you should be able to climb any mountain in Pa.

Try starting with the pedal a little bit turned already. From a straight up and down position it can be hard sometimes -- try with it slightly forward already. If properly tuned it will start on a half kick of the pedal like that.

I always run start my Puch. Pull in the clutch lever, run a few steps, and jump on.

same here, i took the pedals off mine, i just get on, push myself forward a bit, pull the lever and it starts right up.
