You have the compression release. It's that plastic black lever above the clutch. Here's the process. I bet when your kicking it it gets stuck at Top Dead Center? Well thats because there is to much compression to make it go any futher. Well once it gets to top dead center pull the compression release and just slightly push down on the kick starter until you feel the piston start to go down. As soon as you feel it go release the compression release and the give it a good kick. You'll have to do this everytime the piston goes TDC. If it's not starting then hold the compression release and give it about 5 good kicks to clear the cylinder.

Also to that bike has the HOT START on the carb. Hot Start is the red knob and you use that to get the bike going if you've been running it hard and it won't start. On my YZ450F I need to use it almost everytime but I think the 426's doesn't need it as often.

Thanks man, yeah i had to find a good forum cause i was just wearing myself even using the com release turned out that the plug was fouled. So now using the technique you described above it will usually start in one or two kicks. Thanks though its alot of fun now.

Can't really give you an awnser on that. Usually we'll just check the fuel while out on a ride and we usually head back once it gets low. It's usually a 2 to 2 1/2 hour ride with a couple of breaks.
