YZ450f compression "locks"

Recommended Posts

Every once in a while my bike feels like the kick starter seizez up

I'll put the bike in gear and rock it back and forth and it will fire right up after

Bike runs good usually starts 4-6 kicks when cold

Just curious if it's something to be worried about or it just happens here and there

You didn't mention the year. But the 06-09 did it.

Mine does this also

Well if it's pretty normal I won't worry about it to much. My 250f never did that lol

I swear my 16 has done that a couple times. I'll stall the engine and at first the kicker is locked up. Put it in neutral and it kicks right over.

Hmm. Yeah seems common. My buddies 15 YZ hasn't yet. But will see
