I just mine down to the shop and they said the probably with why it wont start might be because a valve might have snapped making it loose compression. Now when i was kicking it over it actually did feel slightly easier so maybe that did happen.

He said Their was a recall on the motors. is that true about a recall on the motor valves?

Also why do they snap?

There is no recall on any 426, and never was. The recall was on the '06 YZ250F.

Usually valves snap off because they've been run for too long in a worn condition. However, if a valve did snap, you wouldn't be able to turn it over at all, so somebody's being BS'ed here.
