Indeed, when I was troubleshooting my kickstarting issues last year, I pulled the left plug and laid it on the head and confirmed that it did readily spark with just a regular, non-superhuman kick.
Did the injector squirt fuel? You can have all the spark in the world, if there's no go juice, there's no go.
How should the injector calculate the fuel need? I don't know what the maps look like, but I suspect if it has to have a certain speed the injector isn't mapped for lower RPM's and therefore doesn't do anything. Perhaps a slight map tweak would make kicking easier.
