    Kick starter frozen...

    No auto decomp cam. I thought the same thing probably a lower rod bearing. I guess I'll just keep pulling it apart and see what I find. I'll try to post some pics shortly.

    Kick starter frozen...

    Thanks for the replies but I think it might be something else. It is definitely not a carb problem, it is getting fuel that is the first thing that I checked. I am not to concerned about it running I think whatever the problem might be that it is directly related to why the kick start freezes. After I got it fired back up it ran and sounded normal(good). I forgot to add that after it stalled the last time, I trailered it home and when I got home it fired up first kick and I shut it right off. When I got it off the trailer I went to fire it up again and it was frozen. I'm gonna take the kick start off and check the gear inside right now, I'll update in a bit and maybe include some pics if I find anything.

    Kick starter frozen...

    I was out riding this past weekend on my 00' YZ-426F, and while I was riding my bike stalled out. I was going down down some hills waiting for a buddy so I took a sip of water from my camel pack and suddenly my bike nearly stalled out. I thought I might have bumped the kill switch with my hand so I grabbed a handful of throttle and took off. I got up to the top of this hill climb and as I crested the top my bike stalled. I sat there kicking the sh*t out of it for a while. It sounded like it had low compression, I finally pulled the hot start (which I usually don't have to do) and after about 5 more kicks it fired up. I revved it up a bit and it stalled. The kick start froze. So I rolled down to the bottom of the hill climb where my buddy was waiting. I took of my helmet and checked the oil to see if it smelt/looked burnt, but it wasn't. I thought it might be dying because of a possible electrical short so I checked the kill switch, and main harness but didn't find anything. None the less the kick start was frozen. I was pretty far out and we decided to head back to the truck; after what felt like a mile of pushing I got to the top of the hill and bomb rode it down. What a feeling a 240 lb pick with no throttle to get over the whoops, and after pushing it so far I wasn't about to pull the brake. Well near the bottom before another uphill section I decided to put it in gear and pop the clutch. It fired right up and I flew up the section and when I got on the road I opened it up and got about 1-2 miles down and it just stalled again. Since then I turned the flywheel and it had friction but it turned. Drained the oil and no metal or chunking. Any ideas?? I will probably end up pulling the kick start tonight to find out if I can possible find something.

    Maxxis Surcross ST any good??

    Thats the same setup that I run, and like it a lot. I had the 756 up front and replaced it with the SI and I love it. Run the IT in the rear and haven't had any wear problems and get awsome traction.

    changing front brake line - '02 YZ426F

    I changed mine out recently to the CR style as well and also changed the master cylinder to a CR 450F master and WOW!! I have front brakes!! Its worth it if you got the extra $40-50 bucks. The procedure above will work, I blead mine over and over and over for about an hour and got all the air out of the line. It was well worth it.

    What oil to use?

    Sure buddy, I run them in my street bikes too and haven't had any problems. Whatever makes you feel better. Though I do agree with your comment about friction modifiers because of running the oil through the trans as well. But frankly oil is just that oil.

    how many people have chinese clones instead of the real thing?

    I wanna play. I'm only 6'10" and I've been looking at Pit bikes for a long time but I make my YZ 426 look and feel small. So what should I get? I want something that will give me alot of room. I've riddin cr50s before and after some mods and lets just say bone stock was just funny as hell for me(and everybody watchin).

    2001 Yz 426 Starting Technique

    Turn the gas on, kick the bike through with the compression release pulled 2-3 times. Let the kick return to the top and without the compression release pulled find TDC(the hard spot). Pull the compression release and push it one click past TDC(meaning down past the hard spot but only a little). Then let the kick start return to the top of its stroke and kick it HARD all the way down to the foot peg. Don't play with the gas or anything while your trying to start it. Keep your hand on the master cylinder of the brake if your not sure you can kick it without twisting the throttle. If you already did, you'll need to pull the plug and replace it or wait till tomorrow.

    help me get motivated

    I think the range is 165-175. But don't worry about being on the heavier side it actually helps to bulk up. It is easier to turn fat into muscle than nothing into muscle. I try to run first then lift weights. Push yourself mentally and physically by starting at somthing manageable then moving it up. Try running 15 minutes then adding an addition minute every week and pick up the pace. The key is variety, mix it up.

    Oil viscosity

    Run normal oil if you change it frequently. I run Chevron or Castrol(anything thats blue j/k) usually whats on sale, but I used to run the expensive stuff like Amsoil. Its a waste of money with regular service. I run 20W-50 most of the time but I'll mix if I'm short, a lil 10W-40 an a lil 20W-50 it won't hurt. I change the oil filter usually with every change but you can let it go for a ride or two, with a magnetic drain plug and not finding much in the filter. I'll usually do a change every 2-3 rides or 10-14 hrs. You can do a search and see there have been many posts on the topic, just my 2cents.
