At Millville this weekend my YZF400 was running poor for first 2 laps of practice then after starting to rev high with the throttle off, I hit the kill switch. When trying to restart, I hit TDC, pulled the compression release to get past TDC a bit and then tried to kick it throuhg and it would only kick through 2 or 3 inches until the kickstarted wouldn't budge without again pulling the comp-release. No matter what I try, I can't get it to kick through. When I pull in the c-release the whole time, it kicks through easily over and over but as soon as I release the comp-release and try the normal starting procedure, it binds up. I don't try to kick it hard in fear of breaking/bending something. Any pointers or predictions. Thanks for any advice. By the way, I adjusted the valve clearance last week and swear I had the clearance in spec and the timing correct but I'll check tonight.
