I have a major issue with my 06 CRF450R with it not wanting to start up. Its got compression but it takes like 15 kicks for it to start up. Then when I do get it started and ride around for it to warm up a bit it shuts off when I pull the clutch in to keep the motor running. A buddy of mine and I took the head off and checked the valves with a feeler gauge. Im not too familiar with motors on dirtbikes but looking at the dirtbike from the back to the front. My left valve is at .005 and my right is at .001. We guessed that because we couldnt even fit a feeler in there to know what it is. I need help on what I should do. Take it to Honda and pay a but load of money to get it fixed or try it on my own with my buddy by a manual.
