She decided to not want to engage consistently whilst kick starting. So (A)how hard is it to change the ratchet assembly? (B) How pricey is it? (C) I noticed while searching I am not the only one with low hrs and a poorly functioning ratchet Whats up with this? And is there any way to improve it or do I just put them in eat them up and put them in again? oh and (D) what parts will I need to order gaskets, seals, springs, bushings etc etc to do this job? Kind of bummed a bike with less than 30 hrs on her which starts in 1 to 2 kicks needs this. But other than this she kicked arse.,My 07ec250 had this problem with about 15 hours or less on the motor. The problem was a too weak spring that pushes the two engagement gears together. I substituted the spring from my 01xc300 and haven't had a problem since (the 01 spring is noticeably stiffer). Apparently very small bits of metal on the shaft cause enough drag on the engagement gear so that it will skip instead of pushing fully together. Anyone having this problem may get by for another ride or two if they change their gearbox oil but the spring must be dealt with before the engagement gears lose their sharp teeth. Removing the spring and stretching it to increase it's stiffness may do the trick, anyway it's worth a try to save your gears which cost 60-70 bucks.,,,

Ave got a ktm 125sx 02 bike wont start with a kick but will start with a bump easy and ave chanced the coil plug and ht cap and when running has plenty of power and got compresson any ideas

unfortunately the most cmmn cause for a bike not starting ff the kick start but starting with a bump is being too low on compression,although to you foot it may feel like enough it does need to be nearly 100% as high as it should be to kickstart.the easiest way to check the condition of the piston is to take the exhaust off and look up the port in the barrel ,it is usually the exhaust side of the piston that gets damaged as it gets hotter.good luck.Adam

I have a gmr885 walkie talkie set...we used them last weekend as we moved from ct to maine..they were charged well before we left ct and when we got to maine put them in the charger, no lights showed lite...

You might try cleaning the battery contacts and the charger contacts with a pencil eraser. It could be you are not getting good connection. Also check your batteries to see they are installed correctly and are touching the internal battery contacts to the radio. Try switching the battery pack to the opposite radio, as a test to see if one will turn on. It would be highly unusual for both radios and/or chargers to fail at the same time. So the problem is probably something simple.

Whatever you not hit it, kick it, smash it....unless you bought it with the guarantee of anything is covered unless it's lost or stolen warranty when you bought it! I have had mine for maybe 3-4 months now & still having problems with mine. Mine wants to freeze up on me. The last time was last weekend, & at the time I'm writing this, it has again been frozen the the past hr 1/2 +. Maybe it has something to do with weekends, not sure. But last Saturday, on my way to work mine was still acting "sick". Wierd & not sure what I did or didn't do, but all of a sudden it started working....approx. 7:30 am WIERD! If you find out what may be causing your problem maybe you might be lucky to find the end of the rainbow to technology....good luck! But again, don't smash it unless you bought the extra warranty. Better yet....! Take it back to the store & get a refund! May you have a better & safe weekend, Leesa Last weekend it took maybe 12 hrs. or so to unfreeze & believe me I wanted to smash it with my foot & I did purchase the extra warranty! Not sure if you are having the same problem. Don't destroy it....instead since mine is covered for anything except lost or stolen....please DESTROY MINE!!
