Hi guys - first post here! So i bought a 01 TE 570 a few yrs back and its been standing in storage overseas. Ive been working on it past week - now down to either the auto decomp mechanism (im new to that) and/or a carb issue (which i doubt). I do own a shop and am a full time mechanic and been working on my bikes for 15 years, so fairly competent but this is my first dirt bike in 30 years I have glued in the magnets which were out of sync- stripped and cleaned carb.. i have strong blue spark too but for some reason she just wont start!! now and then I get a "whirrr" or a pop or a kick back. Last week she ran once for 30s (had no fuel source - just a hose). but she was def rich (sticking needle which i fixed).. as good and clean as everything else is i know she has to start ALOT easier! Been seeing mixed methods on starting cold (its about 70-80 degrees here - not very cold either).. Ive tried (and will try more starting methods) - but wondering if the auto decomp can cause starting issues? I saw that when I had the valve cover off - the manual doesnt cover it, can someone describe how to set it up/verify its working correctly? I have had the kicker thru my tall work boot on two occasions, so much so that im now quite afraid of this thing - seriously!!
