    Just wanted to say a big thanks to everyone that helped out! The bike fired right up and runs better than ever! If I could buy all you guys a beer I would, but I'm only 20 haha

    Yeah man the cams rotated twice no problem!

    Update: So it turns out the piston was off by a good bit, I have it at TDC thanks to the pencil down the spark plug hole. I have everything timed correctly this time. Anything I should look out for or would that fix the problem?

    I didn't think about that, I'll try that. Would it hurt to keep turning and force it over?

    It moves counter clockwise now but only about a half a turn before it feels like it has compression. I'm not forcing it though. I'll attach some pictures I took so you can see the timing. I don't see a mark on the flywheel when the cams are lined up. Which leads me to believe that's the problem. What does the TDC mark on the flywheel look like? There are several marks that I can see

    Correct, it was wound up until the bolts were snugged. I'll check the timing again and do what you said

    Mine has always moved freely when in gear and clutch in. The pencil moved up and down so thats good

    I just put it in gear and pushed it. Its hard to push with the clutch pulled in, which is weird.

    The cams moved freely before I put the tensioner in now that I remember. I wound it back and installed it just like the service manual said.

    Sorry for double posting, the first one wasn't getting fast replies so I used a different thread. The spark plug is the same as the one before and I pulled it out but it's still locked, the cams are seated evenly and torqued to spec. I didn't remove the left cover when I did all this. How would I go about lining up the gears? This is my first time doing this so I apreciate the help

    So I did a valve shim adjustment on my 2009 YZ250f and followed my service manual and followed a video on YT. I got my clearances in spec and put a new spark plug in as well. I put everything back together and torqued the bolts to spec, as well as following the timing marks. Now the kick starter won't budge, it feels like something is in the way when I push down. I didn't try to force it because I don't want to damage anything. This bike has low hours and has been taken care of. I'd rather fix this myself than take it anywhere so I can learn from it, any help would be appreciated. I can attach images if needed
