OK, I just had a very odd thing happen, and I have no idea what the hell the problem is...I just went riding. Everything was fine, bike started first kick with no problems. Now that I am home, I unloaded the bike and went to kick it. With the decomp lever in, it will kick all the way through the stroke to get to TDC, like always. When I let it out to kick it to start it, it won't go all the way through. It stops JUST before bottom. What's the problem?
