Make sure it is in nuetral before trying to kick or the brake will keep engine from spinning. Otherwise have some friends push start you that will let you know if engine is good.

SEE IF YOU CAN ROTATE THE ENGINE WITH THE CLUTCH DISENGAGED, IF YOU CAN, THE PROBLEM IS IN THE TRANSMISSION. I ONCE HAD A JOB WHERE A CLUTCH SPRING BOLT HAD BACKED UP AND CAUGHT ON A TRANSMISSION CASE RIB.YOU MAY HAVE DROPPED A VALVE, BROKEN A CONNECTING ROD, FAILED TIMING CHAIN, SOMETHING EXPENSIVE, NO DOUBT. YOU COULD START BY REMOVING THE SPARK PLUG/S AND LOOKING IN THE COMBUSTION CHAMBERS, PREFERABLY USING A FLEXIBLE INSPECTION CAMERA. YOU WILL SURELY HAVE TO REMOVE THE CYLINDER HEAD/S. YOU MAY LEARN SOMETHING WHEN YOU PULL THE VALVE COVER.

1974 suzuki ts 185 when you kick the kickstarter the front sprocket moves but the piston doesnt


i presume the bike must be in gear to move the front sprocket. does the piston move if try and bump it in gear..if not.the piston has somehow seperated from the krank, need a visual inspection, head needs to come of, possible more. if it does then need to look at kickstart mechanism

1970 650 trimuph wont take any gears just grinds


Clutch might be good, but it could be out of adjustment.

One test is with engine off, pull in clutch and cycle kickstarter a few times.

There should be drag for the first 2-3 kicks, then it should free up (the clutch plates tend to "weld up" [just a term] from heat wile running).

If not remove primary cover.

Pull in clutch lever, cycle kickstarter, and watch that pressure plate isn't "wobbling" as it turns.
If it does, you'll have to tighten 1 or 2 of the 3 clutch spring nuts to get it to turn true.

Then adjust the clutch pushrod free play.
In the center of clutch pressure plate, loosen lock nut and back off adjuster screw.
Tighten screw until it you fell it just "touch" the push rod behind it.
Back off the screw 1/4 to 1/2, hold it from turning, and lock down the lock nut.
Adjust the clutch cable so there's about 1/16" to 1/8" slack at the lever end.

I can kick start my 1979 rm80 suzuki but when I go to shift gears it kicks out and stops running what could be wrong with it?


Hey Michelle,,
This is something that will have to be looked into.. Sounds like the clutch may not be working.. it won't engage/disengage..(the clutch plates are stuck together - a common thing when older bikes sit for a while!!).. this will require the right side cover to be removed, the clutch cover plate removed, the clutch plates(fiber and metal) to be removed, then cleaned, oiled and everything re-installed in reverse order..with a new side cover gasket..

You MIGHT be able to put the bike in gear.. then try to push it (engine not running) with the clutch lever pulled in and get the clutch plates to break loose (seen this work a couple times)..
You SHOULD be able to push the bike(engine not running) in gear with the clutch lever pulled in!!!

Please rate as helpful.. thanks!

Hi there i have a ts 185 and when i kick it it fires and stops with a puff off smoke out of the carby can u tell me whats causing this to happen


Hi, does this bike backfire at all? Noticable as the kickstart hits you hard as you try to start the bike, these bikes used to suffer with cdi ignition failure, eventualy breaking the kickstart ideler gear inside the gearbox which in turn the oil pump drive was also fitted to this,

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.
