It is a little tricky I have an '05 FSE and this is how I do: Slowly kick past TDC on the compression stroke until the camshafts settles in a new position. The engine makes a weird little noise like rotating gears somehow. Return the kick lever to its top position and then take up the slack. Now push it firmly through the entire stroke all the way down to the footpeg. That should do it. I made a video just for all of you who think its impossible,,,

An 07 crf 450 doesnt have a starter motor. Are you sure about the year and model?
Starting a Thumper is not at all likd starting a two stroke. 2 strokes need a little flick on the kickstart and a little blip of the throttle. 4 stroke thumpers need a long, hard, deliberate kick and absolutely NO throttle. You may want to rest your right hand on the bar clamps to start it just to make sure your not adding fuel. Thumpers have a pretty big accelerator pump that can flood quickly and easily. Once you're used to it, it will become easier

but when i tried to kick start the bike it had full compresion or near enough but makes a nocking noise at aboute half way down on the kick start. there for i striped the bike and checked piston rings valves , the lot rearly and it seem's as if the noise is from the gearbox if you lads could help would be great thanks,Could be a number of things. First, pull off the left side cover. You'll see the magneto and all that good stuff. Try and see if you can move it up and down at all. If you can, you'll need some crank bearings. If it's fine, check the condition of the clutch. That's all I can really think of if your top end's fine.,,,

Low Oil light at idle

and whether it may have affected the longevity of the motor?All bikes in Australia had a recall for the clutch covers. If the crank seal in the clutch cover is faulty it loses oil pressure. Some times it could be just a faulty switch. You will se that Gas Gas fixed this on the 08 bikes by removing the switch.,
