Having trouble kickstarting

Recommended Posts

I have a 1999 Yamaha  TT600R, and I am having a lot of trouble kick starting it. About 75% of the kicks result in kickback, like it is advanced in timing or something. I have had it running and it appears to ok once started.

I know how to kick start a bike, and have done so loads of times on other bikes(YZ465,YZ490,XT600,XT500,IT200,Xl250,XR250+.....) without difficultly. (Getting over T.D.C then an almighty kick) I am thinking it is timing related, I have checked the woodruff key and it is fine. 

Is there any other reason why it would kickback as often as it does.

Could it be the CDI? I believe it controls the timing of the bike. (I just bought a new CDI for it as the last one was broken)

Any help would greatly be appreciated.

Decompressor appears to be working, can see it move and hear it click when slowly kicking it.

Seems to breakdown at high RPM though. So I am not 100% sure where to go from here. :/

Going to checking the timing with a timing light to see if something electrical is causing the timing to be slightly advanced,

What breaks down at high RPMs ?
