Question about 1994 Cagiva Mito 125 - Lawson
I can feel the starter motor clicking. So I took it off and pressed the ignition button and the starter motor was spinning as it should. I took off the left crank case cover removed the cog cover removed the cog and rod pressed the ignition button and the starter motor spun as it should. I attached the cog and rod, the starter motor struggled to spin. Is the starter motor working? Why does it spin with the cog and rod removed? Why wont it spin with the cog and rod in place?,You have stumbled on it - if you are describing the stud that protrudes out towards the front wheel where you attached the thick red wire with eyelet on it, then no - it should not rotate freely. Chances are when nut tightened previously it has been turning whole stud (which you mustn't) and so it has(possibly) twisted internal connection to the point of almost breaking. Is there a lock nut on the stud before you attach the starter lead? cos If you are lucky (and no twisting damage has been done yet) you could either replace missing (first) locknut and plain washer and carefully tighten down - mustn't overdo this and watch to make sure stud doesn't turn, or just tighten (presumably) loose locknut thats already there. then you can put starter lead on and then second locknut with plain washer and again, tighten down making sure stud does not rotate. Sorry to say, but tend to think it's the earlier option though.,,,
