My bike feels like the motor is pulling to hard, sounds like the timing could be off. I don't have a repair manual and I don't have the money to take it to the shop. I also hear a ticking sound when I come to a stop loud at frist and then it gets quieter after a few seconds

Sounds like a clutch problem - the only thing that transfers drive from the engine to the rear wheel that can slip excessively is the clutch - other components can wear but not slip.
I know a huge amount of the Harley range use dry clutches not oil bath types like jap bikes.
Saying that it means its like a car clutch - these types of clutches do not like any abuse as they over heat and wear very quickly reesulting in slipping - as you are describing.
A oil bathed clutch shares the oil in the engine and has friction plates like an automatic gear box - because of the oil that can cool the clutch plates they last pretty much forever and don\'t wear from abuse.
I am guessing that you have suffered detonation where the fuel detonates before the spark occurs placing extra load on the piston which slaps hard against the cylinder wall. It will do serious damage to the piston if left unattended.. It is normally caused from incorrect air/fuel ratio (lean) or timing out or over heating Take it to a bike shop not a general car garage as motor bikes are specialised equipment.
That is a tough one, I run a Honda CBR 600RR and I have to post it and bring the motor out to work on the unit all the time. Its not really difficult but a lot better than breaking fingers and spending a lot of time puzzling pieces off your bike. If you have the space pull it, if your cramped up somewhere then refer to the repair manual and give it your best guess. My experience says No. Source: http://www.manualedereparatie.info/en/download/Kawasaki-GPZ-900R-ZX900A.html
If you are hearing the clicking sound that means that your starter motor's relay is trying to engage. Probably you don't have enough juice in your battery. Charge your battery very good and give it a try again.If still nothing happens then you must take out the starter motor and have it repaired. That spinning sound also suggests to take a closer look to your starter motor and your starter clutch which is located behind the stator's rotor.
Hard to analyze from your vague description, but I'm guessing this. FIRST OF ALL. NEVER TURN THE BLADE BY HAND WITHOUT DISCONNECTING THE SPARK PLUG. THE MACHINE CAN START AND CUT YOUR HAND OFF!!! That said, I'm guessing you hit something hard that stopped the blade. If your machine is functioning properly, then you probably broke off the timing key, which is under the flywheel on the crank shaft. If so, then you need to pull the flywheel and replace the key, which costs about $2 USD. If you don't have the means to remove the flywheel, then the repair is better left to a professional. If you do, you'll need a wheel/gear puller and get the flywheel off, after removing the top, pullcord assembly and then simply remove the broken key and replace it with the same. Hope this helps and good luck.
Hate to sound like a smart $$s but if you have got to ask then you don't have the tools or mechanical knowledge to do the work. If you feel the rods need replacing I'd strongly suggest ether finding a motorcycle mechanic or purchase another bike. This is not a simple repair and it's costly certainly it will cost more to repair then what you could get another bike for
The brake handles have each have a switch button that must be pressed for the motor to work. (Actually what happens is that when you pull the break lever it unpresses the button so the motor won't work against the brakes). Just tape the switch down for the time being. Electric Bikes Northwest and David Hawkins might be able to help you with bike parts. I've gotten some parts from him for my La Free Sport. Very few bike shops know anything about these bikes.
on the pass side pull out one at a time the spark plug wires to see what condition they are in. common problem on 4runner are the boot of the plug wires short's out. if there are white stuff on them replace them.
i got an cbr 600rr and somtimes when u press the clutch in it makes a little clicking kinda noise..its just a noisey down side to honda bikes i guess..or it could be somthing to do with ur clutch cable or somthing..im not to for sure tho
and that weezing/rasping sound..i am currently havin the same problem.im not sure if were havin the same issue but when i start off and ride around 0-5000rpms it makes a rasping noise..and iw as told this is the chain tensionor and that they are generally bad on honda bikes...i was told go with a manual one..not sure if these are theproblems ur having but sounds somewhat close..hope this helps
