is this normal

when trying to start a 01 XR650, as you push the kick starter down, is it normal to hear air pushing out of somewhere. Kind of like you were blowing air out of your mouth.


Air should be blowing out the exhaust when you push the starter down. You should also hear air being sucked into the intake by way of the air/fitler cage assembly when the engine is on the intake stroke.
