I just thought everybody would get a kick out of this, no pun intended. I'm 34, and having grown up with a father that worked at a dealership, I've never owned a dirtbike. So after selling my 66 Landcruiser I thought I'd buy a bike to ride in the desert with my wife on her quad, and use as a commuter. My wife and I drove an hour and a half to look at a '99 WR 400 that had a plate on it. We pull up and the guy is trying to start it. Took him maybe 10 minutes. We were like hmm... maybe we'll call and say we couldn't make it. Well we walk over and I take it for a spin and it runs good. Seems like it hits the rev limiter through 1st and 2nd awful early. I'm assuming the "grey wire" disconnect might do something with that. No rear brake, just nothing there when pressed, headlight doesn't work, brake lights don't work. Front turnsignals there but it looks like no wires. To me it looks like it had a dual sport kit and it was yanked out. Anyway, he was asking 2250, I asked for 1800. Sold, so we loaded it up. We drove it home to Temecula, CA and upon arriving I wanted to check the lights again as it was dark, so I kicked it over as it sat in the back of my truck. As it ran, yep no lights, ok. So the next day I try to start it and can't start it for the life of me. The kickstarter doesn't move, I've about broke my foot, hurts still after 3 days. Finally say screw it and bump start it down my driveway. Starts fine after that when I kill it. Oh yeah, no killswitch either. Have to pull in the decomp lever. Yesterday, same thing, can't start it for the life of me. So I go to my local dealer to look for a service manual, they of course didn't have it, so I went to a local Cycle Gear store, love them guys. But while at my local dealer I ask how to properly start a 4 stroke and low and behold, I wasn't pulling in the decomp lever while I was trying to kick it over. Well no wonder the kickstart was such a pain. Such an easy kick now! Haha.... totally felt like an idiot and I thought everybody would love hearing that.
