Kick start hits TDC (I think)when trying to start

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, when I try to start my '00 650R, I sometimes hit what feels like TDC when I'm kicking through the stroke. The lever comes to a dead stop when it should kick all the way through. I know the starting procedure like the back of my hand, so I know its not operator error. It'll do it a couple times intermittently, then start right up. The bike has only started doing this a couple weeks ago. Has anyone dealt with something like this? Something to do with the compression release maybe? Thanks.

Mine started doing that right before i went to a Stage two cam. I blamed it on the auto decomp,,,It simply gave me a reason to get a new,bigger cam..
