I dont know exactly 100% what the problem is but i highly recommend changing all fluids on the bike and for the kickstarter there is something wrong with the kick starter shaft. If you dont know much about bikes i would probably take it into a shop to get looked at.

How do i kickstart my .mz 250 when is tic on top


Im not sure the question is complete but if its cold (hasnt been running) stand over top of it like your about to sit on it. Make sure the bike is in neutral. Hold the front brake to stabilize the motorcycle. Tilt the kickstarter out and make sure there are no obstructions in the kick starters travel, pull the choke out and kick back and down with strong kicks. It might take a couple tries depending on how long its been and how cold it is out side and maintenance of coarse. I hope this answer your problem

Kick start seized


IF YOUR KICKSTART HAS SEIZED AND IT WON'T TILT BACK IN THE PROBLEMS ON THE SHAFT (REMOVE THE DOMED ALAN CAP BOLT THEN REMOVE THE ACTUAL KICKSTART AND CLEAN UP THE SHAFT AND INSIDE DIA OF THE KICKSTART AND LUBE IT BEFORE REFITTING, MIND YOU DON'T LOSE THE SPRING AND BALL). IF ITS SEIZES WHEN YOU KICK THE KICKSTART THEN ITS THE KICKSTART GEAR OR BUSH IN THE SIDE COVER THATS THE PROBLEM. ITS EASY ENOUGH TO CHANGE IF YOU HAVE THE TOOLS FOR THE JOB. IF ITS A DIRT BIKE TRY TO PRESSURE WASH IT THEN SPRAY WITH WD-40 IT MIGHT HELP. GOOD LUCK IF YOU NEED HELP WITH STRIPPING IT DOWN JUST LET ME KNOW (ALSO LET ME KNOW IF ITS A LEFT OR RIGHT SIDE KICKSTART)

What would cause the kick start to jam?


When you say it rolls when in gear, is it as though you haven't put it in gear? Does the clutch lever operation feel normal? Would take off the cover and check the kickstart mechanism, may just be a broken /jammed spring. Also check teeth on kickstart gear and other gears that mesh with it.

I just bought an 1987 Yamaha TT350 dirtbike. is it a 2 cycle and how do i change the kickstart shaft


Hi, a yamaha TT350 actually has a 4 stroke engine. To replace the kick starter shaft, You need to remove the crankcase cover on the kick starter side of the engine..
The clutch basket etc will then have to be removed. '
You then use a set of needle nose pliers to unhook the kickstarter return spring from its post in the crankcase.
Release the return spring and allow it to relax. Then rotate the kickstarter assembly counterclockwise by hand , and remove the shaft assembly from the crankcase. Reverse this process to refit.
You can buy cheap workshop manuals for the yamaha XT/TT 350 models. Clymer manuals make them, there are usually good second hand ones on ebay etc,
the XT/TT350 workshop manual number is
M480-3.
These workshop manuals are a "must have" when working on bikes or cars etc, and by following a manual, at least you'll know that the job has been done safely and 100% correctly.

The kick start on my 50cc moped has become jammed. It hasn't been knocked or anything, there seems to be no reason for it. I've had to kick start it for a while now as it won't start with the key. Could it...


Take the case into which the kickstart goes in, I believe that your kickstarter gear (the small gear found at the other end of the kickstarter, behind the case) has gone out of it's position, thus locking itself in position.
