So why do I get a compression lock when using the e-button. Not all the time. When this hapends, the starter will not turn it over. Then I need to kick it till it passes the locking part and she usually fires right up. She runs fine. Even on cold starts, it usually fires up pretty easy. Could it be out of adjustment timing chain? It's usually only on a warm bike.

When the bike stops right at TDC it takes more compression to get it out of TDC. Happens to all of them.

You have to roll it in gear to get over the hump

Putting it in gear and rolling backwards a little is much easier on the kick start mechanism.

This brings up a question i always had. Is it bad to have your motor turn backwards. As in backing down a hill you stalled on and you drop the clutch but are in too high a gear for compression to stop the bike. Too high a gear being the reason you didnt make the hill in the first place. of course.
