I sidelined my RMZ450 and bought a 2006 YZ450F yesterday after it test rode incredibly well. I took it to the trails today for induction ride and it ran like a dream. But my son took a tumble on his bike so I had to lay mine down and attend to him...it scared me to death watching my little guy do his first over-the-bars flight. Knocked the breath out of him only thank God!! BUT, when I picked the bike back up to start it, it would not start for the life of me. A guy came by and showed me a routine to start it, but while we were kicking it, I noticed that after nearly each time the kick starter was kicked all the way down, I could hear a gear continue spinning for a couple of seconds right afterward. The guy said he did not recognize that sound but he rides 2Ts only. He suggested I ask around...so here I am. I probably would not worry except it sounds like it is not lubricated when it spins. Kinda like a wagon wheel without lube makes that sound. So it is not the smooth effect I would expect. I popped off the clutch cover and it was moist, but I was expecting to see more oil there?? I do not know much about this bike...first YZ for me. Is this NORMAL and can I stop worrying? I stopped riding after that noise for fear it might lead to something worse. Also not sure but would have thought there was a lot of oil running through the clutch area. Might explain the dry gear sound??
