Im not much help, but your not alone.
By the way, I have been racing my bike hard for 2 years now and it still runs as good as the day I pulled it off the showroom floor.

This is apparently not uncommon - you dont stop you engine using the decompressor lever instead of the kill switch do you ?
I am not sure exactly how the lever operates , but according to my local dealer , a Burr sometimes occurs at the action end , and holds the valve slightly open - especially if the lever is used to stop the engine .
i guess ifit is okay now then dont worry about it , but if it does it again investigate further.

Maybe when bike is left sitting for extended periods the cylinder dries up and lack of oil diminished ring/cylinder seal, allowing a little more blow-by, esp. at super low rpm of starting.
Just a theory...

I also have a tire recommendation for you guys that ride in sand and looser conditions. I picked up Michelin S12 front and rear before this ride. I had the stock tires on before. I could literally ride a gear higher than I could with the OE tires. The front tire is nothing short of amazing. I've found that I am not as terrible a rider as I thought.(close though!). Anyway I would recommend these tires to anyone in intermediate to soft conditions. Thanks guy for all your thoughts.

And if any YZ owners who ride dez/off-road read this you can now get the 4 ply K695 A/T in a 19 inch size. Even though it technically has an "intermediate" tread pattern it is good in the sand and the extra stiffness is great for rocks and puncture resistance, it also seems to be wearing much better than a std. 695 and WAY better than a 756.
