RMZ250 seems over compressed???

Recommended Posts

I have a 2013 rmz250 that had been running like a dream until it hit 30 hours on a new rebuild done by a shop and paid for by previous owner. I bought this bike with 19 hours on it and loved every second spent on it until it started to act like it was running out of fuel when it got hot. I got it most of the way back to my barn and had to push it the rest. It would start just fine, run for about 3-4 seconds then quit. 3-4 times. I let it sit overnight and the next day I tried it again and the kick-start lever won't even move even with 220 pounds on it. I took out the spark plug to investigate and decided to try to kick it over a few times. After 2-3 kicks it took almost no effort like it should have and I thought it would most likely be fine so I put the spark plug back in, hooked everything back up, and it started up just fine but would still die after 3-4 seconds, and now I'm right back where I started and the lever wont even move. Any ideas on what this could be?
