Got a 92 xr 600 I just put a new piston and rings in it.I got it all going again.It started first kick.I let it run a little bit and then changed oil.I then started it and let it idle again about 5 more times it started great everytime.But then the first time i reved it up pretty good it acted like it was out of gas and died.(Its not out of gas Hehe)I can not get it started again it will Hit for maybe one second when I kick it.
I think it has jumped time on me.Can I put a new chain in it without pulling the motor out?I guess you should always put a new chain in just for saftey sake huh.:)

I think its possible. Not the easyest way but possible. Remove head cover, clutch cover, clutch...and add lots of patience and a few beer and its possible.

This may be a stupid question, but did you check the timing at top dead center with the valve cover off? the two marks on the cam should align with the top of the head. I would start there.

doesn't sound like cam timing to me! not to mention it is almost imposible for the chain to slip on the gear. if it did you would have more issues than just not wanting to start. I have had this happen to me where I'll let the bike idle and warm up while I get my helmet on or something and it dies, and diffficult to restart. usualy flooded then . You may just have a fowled spark plug

I had my tensioner fail and the chain was really loose. It made all sorts of noise as it slapped around. Even though it was loose, it did not slip a tooth.

It is somewhat rare, but tensioner went bad. There was nothing to check really. Mine appeared to operate correctly when I was putting it together. It only failed while running and hot. Nothing catastrophic, the chain was just slapping around and making noise.
