Would like to know if you need to wind the spring on kick starter

Have a Yamaha Xt 350 would like to know if you need to wind the spring on the kick start shaft or is my spring need repalced? It doesn't take much to put it in the slot and then over the stud. but like that the kicker only comes up about half way. Is my spring shot? Or do you have to wind it around once and if so how? Thanks Skety

There should be some tension on the spring. You may not have the spring positioned correctly as you shouldn't have to wind it around.

Wiring diagram found the manual for 1985 XT is this the same for 1994?


Hi, Sam after 4 tries you finally made it my guess is probably 90% of the 85 will work on the 94 for this scenario you will need your service/owners manual if you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Yamaha, despair not, for a mere $10 you can download another one.

I just bought an 1987 Yamaha TT350 dirtbike. is it a 2 cycle and how do i change the kickstart shaft


Hi, a yamaha TT350 actually has a 4 stroke engine. To replace the kick starter shaft, You need to remove the crankcase cover on the kick starter side of the engine..
The clutch basket etc will then have to be removed. '
You then use a set of needle nose pliers to unhook the kickstarter return spring from its post in the crankcase.
Release the return spring and allow it to relax. Then rotate the kickstarter assembly counterclockwise by hand , and remove the shaft assembly from the crankcase. Reverse this process to refit.
You can buy cheap workshop manuals for the yamaha XT/TT 350 models. Clymer manuals make them, there are usually good second hand ones on ebay etc,
the XT/TT350 workshop manual number is
M480-3.
These workshop manuals are a "must have" when working on bikes or cars etc, and by following a manual, at least you'll know that the job has been done safely and 100% correctly.

XT 125 oil problem


Hi Pete!
I used to have a Xt 500 and loved it to bits, the oil filler then and presumably now is on the right side of the engine by the kick start (If you have one) it is a large black plastic screw topped item which will unscrew (Anticlockwise) to reveal a long shaft (Dip stick).
There you go!
Remember to keep bike upright to check level?
Any concerns please get back to me!
