There is a "C" clip with a stem at a right angle as a part of the clip. This is a part of the kick starter mechanics. Replace the clip. It is about one inch in diameter.

Ya i had the same problem it is the clip on the gear that has fallen off but will not fall off the shaft because of the clutch. to confirm this tilt the bike to the left and kick it over. first i got a new gear because the bushing in it was warn badly (i think it came with a new clip) but about a week or to after it fell off again. we had a set of clips laying around (not metric) and was slightly to small but it hasn't fell off yet and its been over a year.

I just got my ybr 3 days ago, im having a hard time starting with my kickstarter...pls help.

If the engine is turning over when you kick it but wont fire. The first thing to check is the spark plug. if the spark plug is rusted, corroded, or black replacing it should resolve the problem.

Engine seized?

First thing to do is make sure it's the kick starter that has seized and not the engine. Take the cover off the end of the crankcase and try to turn the crankshaft. Apparently these engines were notorious for doing bottom ends. Start pulling it down and see what you find..

I have an 1974 kiwasaki ke100 and i was riding it and all of a sudden my bike stalls and when i tried to kickstart it to try to start it back up the kick starter wouldnt let me kick it down it seemed to be...

this could be really bad or really easy. first, lets hope its vapor lock. take your spark plug out and see if it will turn. if yes, kick it a few times and replace spark plug. if not then we need to see if the kickstarts malfunctioning or the motors lock. put the bike in about third gear, grab the clutch and pull it in, now run beside and push the bike with the clutch in, get some speed and dump the clutch. Hopefully the engine will start turning over, in fact if you have the switchs on you can start the bike this way. If the engine does not turn over like that then you have a drivetrain problem, without seeing the bike theres no way to pinpoint it. Lets just hope the steps above work and you dont have any major problems, good luck.

Bike wont start, lights come on, has gas, wont kick start either

1st is all the way down, neutral is between 1st and 2nd. Sometimes hard to find.
The problem is probably a dead battery. Try to start it using a jumper cable off the car (if you know how) Get some help from someone who knows something about motorcycles.

Yz 250 wont kickstart

You obviously look after your machine and very sensible when laying up, however as you are probably aware 2 strokes rely heavily on compression, A. to produce excellent combustion and B. to draw fuel into the chamber. So when you try kick starting you can't get enough revolutions to draw the correct amount of fuel into the cylinder, where as you push start you constantly turn over the engine increasing compression slightly and bingo it fires.
Can you remember how when kick starting it before this problem the feel on resistance when kicking over? has it now become a lot easier? if so you possibly have worn or broken compression piston rings.
A compression test will reveal this, I hope this sorts your query?
