    I have a 2004 yz250f that I just finished rebuilding both the top and bottom ends. The bike will shift into neutral and will stay if you are just pushing it, but you hear a clicking noise the whole time its moving. Once you start kicking it over the first time if fires, even if it dies, it will jump into first. Any ideas as to my problem?

    It sounds like you're clutch hub/basket is touching the shift shaft. Pull it apart and confirm its shimmed correctly.
