Question about 2001 Yamaha YZ 426 F
I just recently got a 426, and I'm having trouble getting it started. The guy I got it from changed the decompression lever to aftermarket, and there is just no leverage to push it in. I've started it a few times, and even changed the plug. What's the trick?
Hold the decompression lever in and kick it slow then let go of the decompression lever and give it a good kick without using the decompression lever.

I installed a Hot Cam and mine starts easy now. No more need for decompression lever and no power loss. About $200

These bikes start hard when the valves need to be adjusted.
