its in nice shape body wise. no cracks in the plastic and everything.

Is that all that's wrong, no compression? You can buy a top end rebuild kit pretty cheap. That plus one day of work and you're good.(not counting time to have it machined)

ok i dont knwo much about this but the kick start is like not having any like resistance.

you can push it down with like two fingers.

the piston is moving but it has no compression.

you think thats all thats wrong bot?

Your rings are shot. The rings are not springing outward, when this happens there is no way for it to make a complete seal. Buy a top end rebuild kit, take the cylinder to a machine shop and they will clean it up or resleave it. What ever needs to be done. Put it back together. It is that easy on my dirt bike anyways. Make sure the kit comes with rings and all the gaskets. The one for the CR500 cost $149.00 That would be my first guess. If anyone else has any other ideas, please step in!

i put a top in on a blaster about two years ago and had 80 bucks into.. a few hours and was breaking it in... and all blasters are kick start.... very easy to work on... if your not sure on what you are doing or its your first time going into the motor i would recommend that you get the service manual.. it will show you everything you need to know in detail... good luck man...

Lets say the parts are 80 bucks, they will probably charge you 4.5-5 hours for labor which is usually about 65 an hour. You do the math.

if you have and mech skills you can do it yourself.. it is very easy.. get the service manual and go at it.. just take your time and do things right.. you can buy the parts 5 times over for what they will charge you.. unless you take it to a ma and pa type place.. you know any back yard mechs that may be able to help you out...

Is there a decompressor on that engine?I've seen several on 4 strokes but I'm unfamiliar with the 2 strokes.I would think that if there is a decompressor on it and it was froze/broken spring/out of time that could contribute to the easy movement of the kickstarter.I found a site that has oem and generic(Clymer and Haynes)service manuals called Repair Manual Catalog Online - RepairManual.com I got an oem manual for my DVX for about $30 shipped in about a week and a half.Good luck

      Heres my story. Kinda long. I guess I was a late bloomer when it comes to quads. I had never ridden a quad in my life. Rode Dirt Bikes as a kid growing up. Back in Oct of '06 I found a Mustang on craigslist. Took it for a test drive one morning before work. Fast car. 351 Cleveland. I had planned on meeting the guy again after work. For some strange reason thats still to this day beyond me, I stopped in Hillsboro MotoSports on the way home from work. I had 6 Grand on me. There was a left over '05 sitting by the front door. It was on sale for $4999. It was $5499 OTD. I didnt even look at anything else. I knew nothing about quads accept I thought it really looked coool and I had the money in my pocket to buy it. I was sitting on it when the salesman walked up and asked... "Can I help you?" Without hestitation I pulled 60 Ben Franklins outta my front pocket and said "I want this Quad. Load it up in my truck." It was just about dark by the time I drove away from the shop. BTW, I didnt bother to ask my ol lady if I could buy it. LOL. Anyway, I took it by the house and showed her. She was kinda stunned but not mad. We drove over to a friend of mines house and unloaded it. I took it to the field across the street from his house. HOLY CHIT!!!!! I was surprised by the power. I had it for about 2 weeks and took it to Sand Lake. I was there a few hours and rolled it on a banked turn at the top of the bowl right before you get to the one-ways. When it rolled, I flew off and landed on my belly. The quad came bouncing and landed on my back. For a month I couldnt even walk. I was scared of it. I considered trading it for a 250EX. Went back to the shop. The salesman said..."Dude!!! You dont want a 250EX!!! Trust me. Just get used to it" I still wasnt convinced. I put it on craigslist for $4000. Calls were coming in. I had a guy that wanted to come look at it that evening. I decided to take it for one last ride at Browns Camp before I sold it. I was still afraid of it. After about 5 minutes I started feeling comfortable on it again. I decided right then, I loved my Honda 450 and would learn how to ride it instead of selling it. That was late Nov of '06. Work was slow for a Painter in Oregon. My new job everyday? Going to Browns Camp and ridding my Quad. I bought my Girl Friend an '02 Blaster. I rode my 450 for 4-6 hours almost every single day for 3 months. And yes, I know my way around Browns Camp pretty well. LOL. In March I bought her an '06 TRX250EX (Thank God I didnt trade my 450 for one of those) LOL Since then, I have become totally addicted to quads. I love them. Couldnt imagine not owning at least one quad. Luckily I have two. My "07 was $6500 OTD in July of '07. Bought it for my Girlfriend. Traded in her 250 EX. A month later we broke up. So, I wound up with two Honda 450's.

      So I decided to pick up a small trailer if I could get one for the right price.  I found this one for a few hundred bucks on Craig’s list.  It is  a galvanized trailer which is exactly what I was looking for. The wood was shot and needed some minor repairs which I could care less about as long as the chassis was good. 
      I striped it down and put a new deck on. I had some vinyl realtree graphics that I had laying around so I added them to the fenders which I think worked out well. Very happy with this little guy.  
      I'm having the iron workers at my jobmake me up a few lightweight side rails that will have a 22 degree bend in them to accommodate the tires that slightly hang over the edge and will incorporate some tie down points as well.

      So i have a friend at work who was recently diagnosed with a small but very manageable heart problem.  He is in good shape but doc says he shouldn't be shoveling snow or anything crazy for a while until they figure this out. So he asked me to see what i can find him to plow since he has a good size piece of property.  So i spent the last two weeks scouring the local states to find him a good atv with a plow! 
       
      Found  him a big bear 400 4x4 with a plow for a steal!   Going to go through it good and put my touch on it and deliver it next week. 
       
      As much fun as we have with this quad thing its just as much fun helping others out!

      Picked this beauty up for zero dollars this weekend. It has been passed around several of my son's friends and the last kid was just tired of tinkering with it.  Mostly complete 96 300FW. The pic is my boy robbing the swing arm and rear diff for his 300 for a big memorial weekend ride. Wiring is garbage at the battery, kick start doesnt work, no coil, smoked like cheech and chong when it ran last. I figure a couple hundred and a few hours and this will be ready to ride. Journey will be documented on Instagram at @martincyclellc if ya wanna follow along.
