The bike started acting funny and kept stalling on me. I stopped riding for a couple of minutes to let the bike cool off. I tried to start the bike after a couple of minutes and I could not move the kick start with the decompression lever pulled in. The decompression lever was easy to pull. After a couple of minutes of messing with it I was able to kick it over and start the bike but it would only idle for a couple of seconds and then die. After that couple of seconds of idling it did the same thing with the kick start and decompression lever. I seems like it is hanging on something but not sure what it is. When I got it back home I took the valve cover off and checked the timing chain and cams and decompression lever and they all look ok. I also checked the timing and it looks correct. I put it back together and it is doing the same thing.
