2013 RM-Z250 odd compression when kick starting

Recommended Posts

So I bought a rebuilt RM-Z250 and have put maybe 10 hours on it since. When i go to start the bike I found that starting at top dead center makes starting easier but finding that is odd. Sometimes I can lightly kick 2-3 times and find tdc and other times it’s 15-20 kicks. Riding in the woods this tends to suck because you can spend a full minute trying to get the bike going again. The guy that rebuilt the bike showed me everything and the valves were shimmed correctly 10 hours ago although I havnt checked them since. Is this normal for this bike or is it a sign of problems ? Thanks
