No this is not typical! It sounds like when the engine tries to start its kicking back. The force when this happens is great. I've snapped 150HP rated primary belts from this (on a 109HP motor)! Do what ever it takes, adjust carb, timing, different plugs, etc. to get your bike to start with a touch of the starter button. Yes I know this may sound easier than it is. Just get the bike running and starting well with no kick back and you will see a dramatic change in the life of starter and all other parts.
Hope this helps.

1994 Cadillac deville starting problems


As with any no start issue, someone will need to check for spark at the plugs and fuel pressure at the injectors to proceed.
Could be a relay or the fuel pump, or a long list of things.

Make sure the fluid level is correct on the dipstick as the clutch packs will often take a while to fill with fluid and you may need to add more fluid

Jus bought a 91 ninja 600 and wont send any power to the starter


Lets start with the basics...
1. be sure your battery is in good shape and fully charged ( at least 12.6 volts)
2. starting procedure- ignition key to 'on', tranny in nuetral, right hand kill switch to 'run', pull clutch in fully and hit starter button.
3. does it do anything? clicks?... If you get nothing then the problem is likely in the clutch switch, kill switch, or the starter button. You will need a wiring diagram and volt meter to trace down where the power is lost. If you are getting 12 volts to the starter but its not engaging then you can suspect the starter/ solonoid.

PS... My clutch switch has been going bad for a few years now ( Im too lazy to replace such a trivial thing as a safety switch ;). Sometimes I need to hold the start button and work the clutch till the starter engages.
