Question about 2003 Yamaha YZ 125
My son got this dirt bike used right after his father passed away for his birthday. He rode the bike twice we bought it used. Everything was supposedly redone on the bike when we bought it. When you attempt to crank it sounds like a car starter when it is too loose or about to fall off with the metal grinding noice. Any ideas
Sounds like the starter pawl has failed, a tab may have broken from return spring plate, it is a simple job for a home mechanic with a workshop manual, and won't cost too much from a qualified mechanic. However, it is a good idea to search on the net the appropriate models specifications so you have an understanding and are not taken for a ride, literally. Enter your bikes model and year into search, many diagrams and specifications are available to download across the spectrum.
The site below provides exploded views of all the parts on your bike, just scroll down to your model and click on it, then select any section (listed) for your bike. Cheers.
