Yamaha DT50 MX Kickstart doesn't work

Ok i bought my Yamaha DT50 MX and i have only seen it kickstarted twice. Once when we bought it (i think the people had it warmed up before we got there) and the second time was when i cut the HT lead incase it wasn't coming into contact. It kick started for the first time ever at my house...and it has done since.
Any tips, ticks or advise would be helpful,

Cheers

    Thanks but iv already done that...She bumper starts coughs and spullters a bit at the start but once she gets warmed up shes fine. If i turn her off and then try and kickstart right after shes being running it works. Leave her for 45 seconds and try and kickstart, nothing!

    Any more advise would be highly useful,

    Cheers

    Yep, went for about 5 miles and back turned her off then kickstarted her right away and she work. Went inside to show my mate that it worked (took me about 45 seconds to get him) and then it didn't work when i tried to show him (much to his amusement).

    It IS a 2 stroke and i love her to bits but i just don't understand why she doesn't kick start.

I assume the MX is a 2 stroke engine ! Those can be tough at the best of times but let's get it going 1st...This is a tiny lite bike sooo,turn igntion on, shift into 2nd gear and push that little devil until she pops sputters and starts. Now only use premium gas, clean spark plug regularly and use a premium oil, don't overmix....run that baby out in the field for an hour to clean her out...good Luck to you friend...Tim

    Have you driven it 4 an extended period to clean her out?

  • tim winter May 14, 2009

    Ok, let's start w/a new sparkplug gapped correctly. then empty 1/2 bottle of sea foam or Techroline (chevron) in the gas tank...you can download a service manual for FREE at carlsalter.com 2 strokes are finicky so don't get too upset...at least she's small enough to push...these tips should clean er up !...Tim

My 125dt dosent sart or kick sart,the gear inside have a bushing in shafting?or it was broken..


Common cause of kickstarter not engaging(I am guesing that this is your problem) is a broken spring on the kickstart mechanism,or that the kickstart idler gear cerclip has fallen off(this allows the idler gear to move forward on the shaft & thus won't allow the kickstart gear to transfer drive to the clutch hub).Remove clutch cover, put kickstart lever back on shaft spline,activate kickstart lever by hand(easier with sparkplug removed+in neautral)as kickstart lever moves down 90 degrees the gear on the kickstarter mechanism should move out to engage with gear next to it(kickstart idler gear).If the gear on the kickstarter mechanism dosn't move outward it has a broken spring on the kickstart mechanism.replace spring and all should work.(if the spring is broken you need to try find the broken piece with a magnetic pick-up tool as the broken part can cause further damage if not removed)To do this job I highly recommend you first purchase a workshop manual which will guide you through these processes.After all a manual is the most valuable tool in your tool kit.

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
