This seems to be a different issue than my last valve seal problem. The bike ran fine and kicked over fine, this has come up now after that was solved. The bike is almost impossible to kick over with the spark plug in. I took the plug out and I can kick the bike over fine. No issues, feels like it should. Put the plug back in and I can get half a kick before it's a brick wall. Bike has spark as well, tested it. I thought it is my auto decompression, so I put the bike in third gear and was able to roll it a couple feet back and forth and can hear the cylinder moving. But still a brick wall when trying to kick. Second problem, possibly what my issue above is. My clutch lever does not seem to put the bike in neutral. I have adjusted the lever and even used a bar to pull the mechanism on the transmission back but the bike won't come out of gear. I can change gears for the most part without it. What I mean is shifting to first gear, it will sometimes shift, other times it stays in neutral. If it shifts properly the bike will go through all gears without issue. If it doesn't shift then it stays in neutral no matter what. I have taken the clutch / clutch basket out. Everything looked fine and the bike would shift gears seemingly fine. The basket is fine as it has no groove wear from the plates. I'm at a loss at this point. What do I need to check or look at?
