So I slipped up on the kickstarter and it jammed up. I then walked it a mile back home. I opened the crankcase and I could turn the crank with a wrench and it would go from really tight one turn to kind of tight the next. I put the case back together and still locked. I opened the magneto side and turned it backwards until it was easy to turn again. I put it all together and everything in the tranny worked fine because I tried to kick it a hundred times to get it started. Absolutely nothing. Could I have messed up the timing some how?? I know you dont have to adjust it on a PEI system but im getting good spark. I thought I broke the reed for sure and I looked at it and it's perfectly fine. Prior to locking it up, it would start after just a few kicks. Any ideas on what to do or what's causing this? Thx for any advice.
