If it's kickstart, you need to follow this routine: key on, no throttle. Pull choke when cold, pull compression release and kick through the stroke 5-10 times, release comp release and push through stroke til you get to a spot where it's to hard to kick through. This is top dead center of the piston. Pull the comp release and push the kickstart lever about 2 inches, then release the comp release, let the kick starter come to the top, then kick as hard as you can! If it doesn't start, do it all over again. Once you get this figured out, the bikes usually start pretty easy. If you've got a stock edelbrock carb, they are apparently junk and you may need to get a newer carb (FCR or Mikuni, I think). Look at for addtl info.

Will the kickstart from a 1999 ktm 620 fit your 2003 ktm 200?

No, the 620 kicker is much longer than the 200. the 200 shares the parts from a 125. the 620 would need a kicker from at least a 250.

How do you make a 1995 ktm 620 easier to start?

The problem is your carb. Most likely you have an Edelbrock Qwiksilver. The carb is fine,but not for this application. In the case of both the 400 and 620, the carb was excessivelylean in order to make it through EPA emissions. The cure is to swap the carb with a KEIHIN FCR. You can get a kit from or rig one from a motocross bike. A 620 with a Qwiksilver may take 12+ kicks to start. A 620 with a FCR may only take 3 kicks to start.
