I opened the access hole, got a wrench on it and tightened with the bike in gear and brake on.
Now it won't start. Just spins and pops a little.
Does it need to go back to dealer?
BTW it's 2 days old and I'm starting not to like it very much already.

Oh no :) :D. You might want to take it back. Did they jet the bike before you took it home. I work at a yamaha dealership and I haven't seen one yet be jetted right. If the nut was lose maybe the key is sheard :D :D. Check plug also. :D :D good luck.

I put in a fresh plug. I guess now the timing is off?
When the starter just started spinning I removed the access plug and retightned the nut as tight as I could and now the bike will turn over but as I said it just pops and spins.
Is the timing off now? or what?
