i have just got a new 2004 CR 85 Expert two weeks ago. And the last couple of days I have had a problem starting my bike. I changed the spark plug and made sure the gas tank was full. But still when I kick start it the engine just makes a "whoomf" sound and thats it, and when i try to bumb start it the engine cracks a couple of times and dies. i dont know if the weather has something to do with starting because i have heard certain brands of bikes don't perform as well in bad weather, but it has been cold and rainy here the last couple of days. if anybody has any info or ideas about what i should do i would appreciate it.
