SOURCE: kickstart problem

Hi crazy

Your bike has an automatic de-compression lever that helps when starting. This mechanism will make it feel like the bike has low compression. If it is maladjusted, it may be causing the problem

check here for adjustment procedures to be sure that it is set up correctly.

Other than that, low compression pretty much means top end rebuild.

Pull off the cylinder head. Look in the bore. Can you see seize marks on the cylinder? Nine chances out of ten you are going to have to remove the cylinder anyway, so go ahead and do it now. Did the piston seize up? Remove the left side cover. Rotate the flywheel. Crankshaft free to move now?

If not, drain the oil and look at it. Any metal shavings, cork or bits of ground metal in it? Remove the left side cover. Look at the kick start gear. Is it "locked up" in the clutch hub? Remove the clutch hub. Will the crankshaft turn freely now? Put the bike on blocks and turn the rear wheel. Will it turn? While the wheel is turning, can you shift into neutral? When in neutral, can you hold the clutch shaft still while the wheel turns? Any funny noises while the wheel turns?

The piston may have seized the engine. The kick start mechanism or a bent shift fork may have locked up the engine. Gremlins may have done it. Something did, so let's find out what.

Please rate this solution. Thanks!

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

It does sound like the engine has locked up, sorry.If you pull in the clutch does the rear wheel turn? If it does that means the engine has seized.

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)

I have a suzuki gs550 and when i tried turning the kickstart with visegrips it was really easy and there wasnt any resistance. So. pulled the plugs and my pistons arent moving.. what causes this and is it...


It is possible that your kick start mechanism, is broken and allowing free movement. This isn't a good indicator of seized engine. Best to put a socket on the crank nut and turn it that way, failing that if you have a centre stand, put it on the centre stand. Then put it in to 1st gear with plugs out, place a pencil down in to the spark plug hole and turn the rear wheel, just enough to see if the pencil moves either up or down. If the pencil doesn't bottom out on the piston when first placing it in, use a longer length of wood, like a piece of dowel not a stick.
If the wood moves up and down then the engine isn't seized and your kick start mechanism is at fault.

I have recently bought a '72 CB350 twin. Everthing worked but now the kickstarter won't. The kickstarter will go all the way down and return, there is no combustion sound. It will turn the wheel...


possible problem as this is a common thing on the CB360's. What happens is the kick leg tends to slip out of sync with the engaging gear, it will be under the right side cover. Some times you need to remove the cover and manually put it back in to sync.

Otherwise you have stripped your kick starter gear.

Kick start wont move


Oooh that's bad, there are a couple of options. The best case senario is that your carburator floats got stuck down allowing the fuel to fill up the cylinder and exhaust pipe. This creates too much compression for the piston to move inside the cylinder. You can check this by pulling the spark plug (MAKE SURE THE BIKE IS OFF!!!) then kick it over. If fuel sprays out of the plug hole then you're in luck. If you don't turn the bike off first, the spark plug will ignite the gas squirting out of the hole and catch on fire... I know from experience. Tip the bike over and let it drain out of the exhaust and plug hole of the cylinder. If the kick starter will not move with the plug out then it's time to remove the flywheel cover. With the flywheel cover removed and the plug out, try turning the flywheel. If it turns then the kickstarter gears are jammed or broken. If it doesn't turn, then the piston or the crank is seized. Good luck.

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..
