GasGas 280 Pampera Kickstart

Back again with a kickstart question. My bike is extremely hard for me to start and I figured out the problem is that the point where I meet compression is so low (closer to the ground) that I don't get enough push on the kickstart pedal. Some guy told me to move it up a tooth or two? Anyone know how to do that?

    thanks rockitman 187...I thought it would be that simple but since I got such great response here last time, I thought I would give it a go.

Kick start seized


IF YOUR KICKSTART HAS SEIZED AND IT WON'T TILT BACK IN THE PROBLEMS ON THE SHAFT (REMOVE THE DOMED ALAN CAP BOLT THEN REMOVE THE ACTUAL KICKSTART AND CLEAN UP THE SHAFT AND INSIDE DIA OF THE KICKSTART AND LUBE IT BEFORE REFITTING, MIND YOU DON'T LOSE THE SPRING AND BALL). IF ITS SEIZES WHEN YOU KICK THE KICKSTART THEN ITS THE KICKSTART GEAR OR BUSH IN THE SIDE COVER THATS THE PROBLEM. ITS EASY ENOUGH TO CHANGE IF YOU HAVE THE TOOLS FOR THE JOB. IF ITS A DIRT BIKE TRY TO PRESSURE WASH IT THEN SPRAY WITH WD-40 IT MIGHT HELP. GOOD LUCK IF YOU NEED HELP WITH STRIPPING IT DOWN JUST LET ME KNOW (ALSO LET ME KNOW IF ITS A LEFT OR RIGHT SIDE KICKSTART)

Kickstart has no compression


no compression
has the spark plug come loose,
could be bust piston, rings or valves,
right googled it, its a 2 stroke no valves,
moving on, your have to remove the head and barrell to see whats gone, the piston or the rings. its probably the rings.
its not as hard as it sounds on a 2 stroke so even a novice could do it.

Hi there i have a ts 185 and when i kick it it fires and stops with a puff off smoke out of the carby can u tell me whats causing this to happen


Hi, does this bike backfire at all? Noticable as the kickstart hits you hard as you try to start the bike, these bikes used to suffer with cdi ignition failure, eventualy breaking the kickstart ideler gear inside the gearbox which in turn the oil pump drive was also fitted to this,

2 year old Jonway 125cc bike cuts out and kickstart fails


check first if spark plug working you can see spark light on it upon kickstart. then proceed with the gas carburetor if gas intake working and not stuck. if no power goes to spark plug trace the source. first the cdi then the ignition coil and the voltage regulator.

Yamaha srx600 kickstart seized


Check your 2 stroke oil reservoir, got a feeling it's bone dry. If so your cylinder is scored and will need some machining, new piston and rings....Good luck to you friend...Tim

1974 R90S Transmission question


I'm not certain on the availability of the kickstart, but I would guess it was phase out over time and was also an option. From what I've heard, the kickstart on these machines left quite a bit to be desired. It was functional, but just... It seems the kickstart is best left for those dire situations when the electric start didn't work. Even then, you could bump start the bike... Duane Ausherman has info on the kick start workings here: http://www.w6rec.com/duane/bmw/trans/
