2011 yz450f just bought it from a one owner, took it to the track and rode fine, killed it to take a break went back and kicked it several times and it locked up, I couldn’t kick it, so I put new piston/rings new timing chain, when to start it and same thing.. I didn’t split the case, because the crank seemed fine and would turn over with out the top end on.. what could it be? The guy helping me was a dirt bike/sidebyside/atv mechanic for years and it stumped him. Thoughts??
We have a 2016 CRF450R with about 11 hours out. never ridden hard always check the oil and change when needed along with the air filter. Took care of the recall that was required as well. Well when riding the bike was stalled out. Went to try and kick start the bike again. the kick start lever just back up jamming my knee into the handle bars and some how ended up cracking the case right by where the kick start goes through the case. Has any one had this happen or heard of this happening? What is the cause?
Hello there, I have an issue with a new to me 2001 Honda Cr250r. I got the bike a few weeks ago all torn apart. I put the whole bottom end and top end together, referred to every engine schematic and followed my Clymer manual. And so my first issue is when I kick the bike over it seems like once nearing the footpeg the engine or something feels like it maybe getting stuck, and after that hard spot it extends fully down. However when I push the Kickstarter down with my hand it seems totally normal. Now I have two guesses on this. Either the bike has a lot of compression, and once the kicker is in that hard spot, that's basically when the bike has full compression. Or my other guess is that something is binding. I took the right crank cover off three times and looked at the Kickstarter. Yes the kicker is assembled correctly, the two dots on the spline and gear line up, the spring is oriented correctly and in the hole. Now my other issue is that when I lean the bike over on its right side slightly, the whole engine locks up and I can't spin the flywheel or Kickstart the bike. Only way to get the motor free again is to tip it to the left. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know as I have no idea what's the problem. Thanks. *engine locking up when tipped over happened even before I put the top end back together. So I doubt it's anything with the top end.
