2007 CRF 450 Starting Problems

I have always ridden two strokes but recently joined the masses and bought a Honda CRF 450. It's a great bike to ride.. when I can get the bloody thing started! I know not to use any throttle when kicking it over, but it still disobeys me every time by refusing to roar into life without me first unleashing a flurry of Bruce Lee-style kicks to it! As you can imagine this gets pretty frustrating and my right leg is now harder than Mr T's right nut.

Do I need to get the valves checked? Any suggestions would be appreciated before I dig a hole for this thing and take up ballet.


- Ha! And the letter of the month goes to..
