I was riding the other day and coming up to a corner the bike stalled. kicked it over ran for a few seconds then stalled again and would not start.
I got the bike home and checked the spark plug (hard plenty of spark) then took out the carb and all seemed fine. it wasn't full of dirt and the jet worked fine. and the bike kicked over properly it just did not start
the bike was recently rebuild but had ran perfectly for 5-10 hours since being rebuilt
I left the bike for about a week. flushed out the old fuel and put new stuff in and tried to kick it over.
pulling the compression clutch in the kickstarter goes all the way down like it should no problems
when I let the compression clutch out push it down 1/4 of the way let it back up then go to kick through it to start the bike (how I have started the bike for the last 9 years and it always fired 1st or 2nd kick) the kickstarter stops about an inch short of where it should and it stop hard like I am kicking a rock.
any ideas of what could have caused the bike to stop in the first place and why now after a week the kickstarter is not working
