I have decided to give it a once over and have ordered a JD jetting kit, will change the plug and see what happens?

Bluebike put the right plug in as different plugs will operate best at different temp's.

Also, the higher the number with the NGK plug, the colder it is. Normally, this would not hurt, but if you are running a bit (or a lot) rich, you need a hotter plug, not a colder one. For a wet or dark plug, get a hotter plug, in this case the stock 8.
Also, valve clearance can affect starting. Maybe a check is in order.

Anyhow we figured it out by calling around, its a centrifical pin, so when its running it pulls in and no decompression. When it not running the pin is out and aids in starting. You switch timing with the ex cam and therefore it throws off the the timing of the pin and no starty
Thats how I understood it anyway??
Must replace Ex Cam to go to YZ timing.

Let the mechanic fix it.(if he/she did the timing)
yeah, i think you're right. Given my mechanical expertise i'll take the 'do it once do it right option' and get him to have a look.
I'll let you know how I go.
Thanks again everyone.
ps just bought another pw80 for my youngest son,(4y/o) can't wait to blow him off Marcus style.
