OK ..I know about putting them in a high gear and rolling back until you feel the compression then changing to say 2nd with the clutch in roll along ...JUMP on and release clutch at the same time . Even with this method and a gentle downhill slope i've had difficulty . Just wondered if there are any further tips/tricks . I've heard of people who claim to be able to bump start big singles on the flat with wet grass underfoot! obviously some bikes will require usage of the manual decompressor but that's not an issue on the dommie. Also some say don't open the throttle up ( as would be most peoples natural tendency). I suppose things vary whether the bike is hot or cold.
