I have a yz450 dirt bike. I just recently tore the bike down to change the bearing and crank shaft. After assembling the motor I tried to start and everything was fine. Idle and all. When I shift to takeoff u can feel that it is in gear. Only problem was bike didn't want to move. I tried all gears and everything shifts right but will not move. Any suggestions.

Sounds like the clutch.  Start by making sure you have 3mm free cable travel at the clutch lever.

It really sounds like a clutch issue. Maybe your mising a disk. Did you actually pull the clutch apart or did you just check the free play as ?suggested before
