  • It is easier and not such a sudden jerk if you put it in second gear add little choke roll down hill and pop the clutch bingo

  • Yes have done it myself on level ground. Not a problem if you are strong enough to push the bike.

  • Yes. I've had to do it a couple times.

  • As long if it's not fuel injection but I don't think any shadows are

  • My old triumph needed a bump start many times I agree second gear is good.

  • When I do mine, I pull the choke out a little, then pop it into second gear. Starts right up.

  • The newer Shadows are efi....

  • My 2011 aero is fuel injected. I guess mine would not push start if I had a dead battery.

  • That's correct...

  • strange.. I do push start for my car and it's injection
