pulled the spark plug this afternoon to check its reading, reinstalled everything and went to kick it over....I still have the decomp on this '02 426, but it stroked right through the kick w/o stopping on the high spot. I can not fathom that some debris went down the plug hole and is holding up a valve. With the decomp lever pulled in, it strokes easily as it should, w/o the lever pulled it strokes through with some resistance. Prior to plug check, the bike was running excellent. The bike will not start. This is an oddity to me. The motor is bone stock also, plug was a nice medium brown. Also made sure that the decomp cable was not kinked so that it may lightly activate it. Decomp is completely closed.
