Just bought a 1998 Yamaha wr400 a few weeks ago, helluva bike! Problem is I took it for a ride the other day, stopped for a while then tried to start it up and the kickstarter stayed down. I had to manually pull it back up. That being said, I still needed to get home so I pushed it to a hill and had to roll/compression start it, this in itself took some doing because the first few times I released the clutch, it started then the kickstarter went down by itself and stalled the bike. Any ideas or suggestions would greatly be appreciated in regards to what I need to repair/replace!!! Thank you in advance!
