And thank goodness my life partner was very understanding about this
Beezie, You promised you wouldn't tell anyone.....
I believe him too, I'm on my 4th motor, and I've only ridden my bike four times.... I think the 5th time is the charm.... I'm starting to feel that I should have bought a used XR400 instead......

Is it really that unbelieveable?
I have no pictures, but tomorrow I'll get the work order from my office and gladly scan in the work order with my make, model and vin# and all the parts & #'s if someone will give me a url or tell me how to upload a jpg on to the post.

I have seen the start and run backwards thing too!! The bike was a very old yamaha 60. My younger brother started the bike up, grabbed a bunch of throttle and dumped the cluth......and promptly shot backwards about 6 ft, with a very surprised look on his face.
At 15yrs old or so my eyes were very wide! His were too! he then slooowly let out the clutch.....and went backwards again!
Long story short, he shut the bike down and started it again and it ran fine!! Still the damndest thing I ever saw a bike do!

I had a 1979 Husky OR250 and about 1 out of 25 times started, it would be running backwards. You could let out the clutch and burn out in reverse. Kill it, restart and you were going the right way. I always assumed it was just a bad design.
