If you are on a flat surface, just push the clutch in to start. If you are an incline, push the clutch in and use the brake pedal.

I always press the brake out of habit because of my days with automatic cars but pressing the brake never hurt anyone

i usually put my key onto II (guages and fans come on) and leave it there for a second for the fuel pump to move fuel, then start it - kinda like you have to wait before you start a diesel

when you put it in II doesn't the oil light and all that come on? probably isn't moving anything

Every Honda I've had starts much better using this method. Not sure on the Si but, it's not a bad habit.

this is my first honda and ive been using this method about half the time ive owned her and i feel like it helps.. you can actually hear the fuel pump start and then stop a second later..... if anyone has ever started a diesel, you'll know what im talking about
