SOURCE: THE BIKE CREAPS WHEN THE CLUTCH IS DISENGAGED THIS

Are you sure you put them back together in the correct sequence and spacings? To me it sounds as you missed something such as over tightneing or wrong clutch sequence. Try re-do it again.

SOURCE: 1998 Kawasaki Klx300 I was riding my dirt bike and the idler gear broke. I replaced the idler gear now theres no compression on the bike, it won't start at all. Kick lever does move bUT doesn't strt

idler gear nothing to do with engine timing .right

did the bike stop dead when the idler pulley broke
if the timing chain skipped a tooth some how
timing marks could be off by one tooth only

strange you have spark and fuel but no compression

you will have to take of some covers off
recheck timing marks
check valves and piston are no damaged

Why my kick start will not work


usually that means a frozen engine I hate to tell you.

I would pull the spark plug, put marvel mystery oil, or 2 stroke oil, something light...then rock the bike and shift until you think you are in
5th gear then push the bike to see if the engine will turn over.

1991 suzuki gaxr 1100 shuts off when place into gear


Only thought Is the Kick stand switch
Is a kickstand on or was there one ever on this bike? If the switch thinks the kickstand is down it will stall out as soon as you kick it into gear.

The clutch wont diengage


Might be time for a Clutch Slave Rebuild.

Has the Bike sat for many months? Sometimes the Clutches stick together because the oil , like, suctioned them together.
You can start the bike, hold in the clutch and kick it into first gear. It may stall out a few times but usually that will free up the clutches. Careful , the bike will lunge foward as yo kick it into gear

Hello.Owner of 1990 XT600 2KF,30.000 km in very good condition. after een steep ride in first gear,I cannot shift to first gear.It seems stuck.Engine off: no problem changing gears. What can this be: Oil...


If the clutch is operating fine as well as the shift mechanism, it's either a bearing or a internally cracked case that's allowing the bearing to move. First gear is actuated on the rear transmission shaft that Is common to the drive sprocket on the left side of the bike, and an idler gear that engages the kick start lever to the clutch basket. This is located under the right engine case cover. Remove the chain and sprocket and check the shaft to see if it will move up and down in the bearing. If that's solid, remove the right side cover and check the case and bearing under the idler gear. I have had Yamaha cases crack at that bearing area and cause that same problem. Good luck!

Replacing kick start shaft


Great bike!

To get to the kick starter shaft and idler gear you will first have to remove the kick start and brake levers. Then remove the water pump cover and circlip, the impellor, and steel drive pin. Then remove all side cover bolts and pull the cover off the engine. Don,t let the water pump shaft come out of the engine when you pull of the cover . Suggest the best thing to do is set the engine in TDC with the timing marks on the cam side together. When the shaft come out you have to time it again, so hold it in place in the engine.

Hold WP shaft down with your thumb while pulling on the cover.

Once the cover is off the Kick Start idler gear assembly lifts out easy but as you put it together there is a center punch mark on the gear that goes in first that MUST be in aline with the spring hole drilled into the shaft, if not in aline the starter will engage at the wrong point.

Reinstall new shaft and idler gear in reverse order.

'06 vtx 1300 c : engine dies when put into gear


You have one of two things going on. (1) You need to check the kick stand switch, your bike thinks the kick stand is still down. It may have been loosened out of adjustment by vibration. If the kick stand switch is out of whack, it will restart as long as the clutch in pulled in. But as soon as you try to let out the clutch it will kill the engine, if it is in gear. (2) Next problem could be, you need to loosen up the clutch cable a little bit, The clutch control on the handle bar has a screw type of adjuster (clutch cable passes through it ), try loosening it till it's easy for you to move the bike without the engine shutting off. Hope it helps and comment if you need more clarification.

My kx100 kickstart won't work


have a look at the clutch cable there may be far to much slack on it so your not fully disengaging the clutch thats why the bike pulls forwards

1984 Honda XR250 with wrong clutch, I think.


The kick shaft gear, idler gear, and clutch drum gear on the 1985 xr250 and below are smaller tooth gears than 1986 and newer. I have an 85 and an 88. I had to replace the 85 kick gears 3 times. The last time I replaced them I found that the larger gears on the 88 fit as long as you replace only the gears. The kick gear comes off the shaft and the larger tooth gear fits on the shaft. The larger idler gear fits where the smaller tooth idler was and the drum gear comes out and the larger tooth gear will fit there. Or the drum you have with the larger gear will now fit the other gears. This is a better solution than finding another drum with the smaller tooth gear because the smaller tooth gears will not last. I hope this helps.

I was riding my wr 250cc


Check the sprockets. Got a stick or rock binding the chain? Remove the chain. Does the wheel spin freely? Brake frozen?

Since your bike is water cooled, a seized piston is not too likely. Got water in the radiator? Most likely is a broken torsion spring on the kick start shaft. The adjacent ratchet wheel and the kick shaft should be inspected. The ratchet wheel should have a smooth movement. If not then replace it. The kick shaft should not show wear or damage. The same is true for the kick gear and idler gear. Replace as needed.

The only other possibilities are a frozen main bearing, (not likely), a broken or severely bent shift fork, (more likely than a main bearing).

Please rate this solution. Thanks!
