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.

What's your problem?1995 yamaha virago 1100 that sometimes you you put into gear and immediately dies

The Clutch on some bikes will disengage the starter motor. Yamaha will not allow you to engage gear when the side stand is down. Hope this gives you some idea

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.

I have a Hartford Legion 125 W reg 2000 model which looks like a Honda 125 cg. The problem i have is the electric starter turns over the engine quickly but wont fire up the engine. It has a kick start and...

Hi, Taffyrhys the starter clutch is a separate mechanical gear driven component that is activated by the starter motor, it engages the clutch pack gear or the flywheel gear to turn over the engine. It has an internal mechanism that allows the gear to turn in one "ONE DIRECTION" only and once the engine starts allows the gear to free spin with engine rotation. If the starter gear free spins in "BOTH DIRECTIONS" then the drive gear has failed, it might be serviceable on some models but usually needs to be replaced.

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.

Kick start is jammed

Put the bike in 3rd, 4th or 5th gear, the higher the better. Sit on the bike, with your hand off the clutch lever, and rock the bike back and forth to rotate the clutch hub. This might free up the lever. You will need to drain the oil and remove the right side casing to see and service the kick starter. If I recall correctly, there is a spring clip that allows the kick gear to engage the clutch hub. The piece could be broken, weak or out of position.

Stalling problem from neutral to first gear

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, if the bike will be run without its own battery, the engine will really stall. This is because there will be no consumer for the voltage output other than the ignition system which will clamp down when the engine is revved and the voltage tends to go higher still.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
