While changing my bars this weekend, and doing everthing that goes along with the chore (grip removal and replacement, levers, light switch, decomp lever, kill switch, bark-busters, etc...) I noticed a wierd problem went I tried to start the bike to take it around the block. When I started to kick it over, I noticed that I was able to continuously kick it over without pulling the decomp lever. I was trying to find TDC and normally when I find it, I can't kick the lever down farther until I pull the decomp lever. After a while, 20 kicks or so, I finally started to get resistance when I kicked it. After a few kicks, I checked to make sure the decomp lever (since I messed with it during the bar change out)was working properly, and not stuck open. It was fine. The only other thing I can think of was that during the grip replacement (throttle tube replacement) I kept giving full turns of the throttle to ensure that everything was working OK. I.E., no sticking throttle. After 20-30 turns of the throttle, I realized that I had left the gas turned on. Could this have caused the kicking and getting no resistance problem? It was kind of nice to see what an O3 exhaust cam would feel like in my 99 WR400...But I'm glad everything seems normal now. Thought I was screwed for a while.
