Hey, I ran into a mechanical problem this weekend for the first time with my 98 WR400 engine. I thought I would see if anyone else has expereinced this before I start diagnostic surgery. Bike has been running great, no probs. While riding this weekend we stopped at a trail crossroads to decide what way to go and I shut the bike off. I then restarted it, put it in gear and proceeded to take off and as I let the clutch out I stalled it, or at least I think I did. After that I couldnt restart it... better yet I cant kick it thru a complete revolution. As you go down with the kicker it turns over a bit and then makes a light metalic clink and will not turn over any more. putting the bike and gear and backing up a tiny bit you can feel the engine turn backwards a bit (I know this is bad to rotate it backwards cause of timing chain jump possibility). you can then proceed to kick it a bit until you hit that "spot". You can also feel this spot by doing the same thing in gear, roll back a bit then forward and it hits it. The one thing that seems a bit odd is the compression release lever doesnt seem to have as much tension on it, almost as if internally it is still released, however the external actuator on the head is moving its full range of motion. Has anyone experienced anything like this and could save me some time exploring? I havent found anything else on the board that describes this situation. Thanks!
