Electric start and compression stroke...

Recommended Posts

The bike is an '08 WR450F. It starts fine with the E start unless the temps are cold (<20*F) but occasionally gets stuck on a compression stroke and won't budge the engine.  I have to either put it in gear and "bump" the engine or fight with the kick start to get it past the compression.  Is this typical for these bikes? It gets pretty frustrating when I'm bound up in the woods and can't easily get to the kick start. Is my de-comp screwed up?
