    Thanks for your help grey,sorry I felt like the bike had no power,I described it to the best of my knowledge at the time I made the post and tried to keep the post up to date with where I was at with diagnosis.

    The bike would move it just didn't have the torque it had before..I would say thats a lack of power

    Haha,yeah Im feeling a lil stupid...but when my bike stopped running right after a cold hard rev I instantly jumped to conclusions...and had forgotten about how I had adjusted the clutch cable after riding last time..so after checking everything I could imagine it came to me.the engine could be running fine but if the power of the engine was sorta getting to the transmission it would cause this issue.thanks gray racer for your help it really saved the day because I thought 90 psi was low for a compression test.I rode yesterday evening and man was it good to be back on the trails

    It just hit me the Clutch cable is to tight is my guess IMA put the bike back together.

    I do not believe my engine is to blame after I was able to get a hold of a cylinder leak down tester.

    Ive checked timing.its spot on,How would I check the auto decompression to see if its working as it should and could a carb cause a issue like this?because I had just changed the air filter possible for particles to fall into intake...thanks a lot for your opinion on the compression test,I'm use to doing compression test on car/trucks.and I do agree that I may of feared the worst and jumped to conclusions on the engine...

    Rebuilt the top end 15 hrs ago and recently checked valve clearances(piston and rings,valve seals,cam chain,gaskets,valve adjustment)Runs great been changing oil/filter every 3 rides. I just adjusted the clutch cable and replaced the air filter,changed oil(did not ride it yet since doing this) Here is what i belive caused my issue,I started it first kick starts right up wtih the choke on and then pretty much hit the rev limter and cut it right back off.I regret doing that.i know it was not wise but who hasnt done something stupid while drinking. So i go to ride it the next day and it has absolutely no power,no wierd noises,bike sounds the same when you give it gas but doesnt really effect my speed I pulled the engine out and "inspected" engine timing,valve clearance,spark plug,top of the piston but not the rings,valve springs,valve seals,valves dont look bent,engine oil was good and filter clean(everything is looking okay). Im looking for some advise at what to look at next?Any help is greatly appriciated thanks

    Should i buy a 07 YZ450F $2200?

    Does anyone know the average cost of rebuilding the top end on one of these?
  12. http://richmond.craigslist.org/mcy/4310544208.html From a cold start it starts on 3rd kick and i rode up the street and back and slowly turned around and it cut off??No idea when valves were adjusted or any engine work? has a yoshi slip on exhaust and plastics are in good shape.looking at the frame you can tell its been rode quite alot.needs rear brakes and chains and sprockets with in 6 months,tires in good shape suspension tight and forks didnt seem to be leaking did not see any oil leaks.rode well. what im asking is would you pay $2200 for this bike with the possibility of needing to rebuild top end?
