Spring is busted. If you aren't comfortable with piles of extraneous parts floating around, take it to the shop.

I don't know where the spring goes for the kick

The kick start return spring goes inside the case on the right hand side. Best to get a manual to be 100% on how it is supposed to be set. You can download a manual online for as little as $5.00.

How do i remover 1993 yz 125 kick start shaft

take the case off and be careful not to drop any gears out the back of the case. Then snap the spring loose and then pull the kick axle gear out. The key is putting it back in. Carefuly line up the clip and square on the back of the kick axle with the holes in the back of the transmision then be sure to push on the gear to see if it popps into place. then bring the spring clockwise to fit into the hole. Besure the spring is pushed all the way back. Now carfully put the case back on.

I have a kawasakikmx 125 which had a slipping kick start i have removed the engine casing but cannot see where the spring end is meant to locate does anyone have a diagram please thanks Neil

I can't find a diagram of the position of the spring when connected, but I can describe it, the spring has 1 straight end that connects through in the hole in the shaft of the kick start, and a bent one protruding out of the bottom of the spring at a kind of right angle. This one goes into the casing of the engine not the case cover, if you look around the edge of the casing, just below where the kick start assembly goes you should see a hole that holds no purpose. That where the other end of the spring goes, just pop it in and lever the assembly back to position.

Weak spark

If there was a probem with the coil the extra loading from the short circuit may have caused a problem with the trigger coil for the main coil. I don not have the spec but this value can be check with an ohm meter. Let me know how you make out...
