Hi everyone. So I’ve got an 05 trx 450r that the kicker is locking up. It’s been to the mechanic where the replaced the cam chain due to kink but didn’t fix the problem. I then replaced the first gear idler and it has worked fine for a couple riding sessions but last time I killed it and went to start it and it was locking up a little. The motor will turn with an Allan wrench and also if I press the clutch a bunch it seems to get it to where I can get a good kick out of it then it locks back up. The valves have been adjusted along with the decompressor while at the shop. I’ve read about 100 threads but none exactly like mine so I thought I’d post. If I rock it back in forth in gear it sort of releases but not every time. I’ve also noticed that if in gear and clutch pulled; when I kick it the bike wants to move forward (cold start)? Little about the bike, it’s got a 12-1 high compression piston stage 2 hot cam ported head. Any advice would be appreciated. When it runs, it runs strong.
