is it siezed up and the kick lever wont even go down or do you just mean its not starting up from a kick start? if its not siezed replace your spark plug. if its siezed... you might have done something wrong replacing the top end. my bike is siezed up right now but thats from blowing my top end.

try a roll start and get back to this thread with what happend.

If it won't turn over, DO NOT try to bump-start. There's a reason it won't turn over. Take it apart and figure it out.

i havent tried to bump start it but the lever goes down about 2 to three inches and then wont go down anyfurther, the topend was just rebuilt. and i was trying to start it when the carb was not working, i need another one and then the lever all of the sudden wont go down.

You lost me man...

Have you been able to stroke the kick-start lever completely and freely since you got it back together?

I would suggest a "gentle" push start to see if the engine is locked up or if the starter has just gotten messed up. Shift up to a high gear and try pushing the bike, it shouldn't be difficult to get the engine to turn over. If it won't turn over going forward try backing up.

If you get it to turn over this way then try the kick starter again. If it works now then I would say that the kick start mechanism jammed. This needs to be investigated!

If you can't get it to turn over by pushing then I would tear back into the top end. I would suspect that something got dropped down into the crankcase and is now wedged in the lower end. Were there any "oops" mistakes when you were rebuilding the top end?

if something was stuck in there and you go to start it, it may run for a minute but when it sucks that piece up into your cylinder you will have one heck of a problem on your hands. i would take it apart and do the job right.
