They have parts blow ups that may help, just short of getting a service manual.
(Look under transmission, kickstarter)

Hi yes, what you have to do is .you have a angled plate that is bolted to the frame, where the hinge of the stand tube is the long end of the spring fits in the gap, the short end hooks on the little nipple that sticks out the side of the stand, it will be hard to put back on,so put the short end on first, then get a pair of long nose pliers to hook the long end of the spring into the gap....hope this explains it for you

    i do apologise, i just noticed that silly me....sorry late night.. here is a photo of how it should look be sure when putting it back on the bike you push the part on the spring that is sticking up, into a gap on the casing, the spring should have a small hook end, this fits into the cog, and then the long extended part of the spring, fits onto a ledge on the casing...hope that's a better description this time...

Honda cd-70 kick jams and not working ?

Remove kick starter cover and see what's the problem.

Could be a broken spring or gear, and the loose piece could be jamming up the works.

Replacing Kawasaki kx 80 kick start return spring

Hi, easy job, if your bike is waer cooled, you dont say how old it is the old bikes were air cooled, undo all the water pipes attached to the r/h case all the water will escape, you can leave the oil inside the gearbox, if you lay the bike on its left hand side, lift the engine and block it up to make sure gear lever is not resting on the ground, as this will disengage when you remove the clutch cover on the r/hand side, undo all the fixing screws from the cover remove kickstart lever, tap the cover gently to loosen the cover and remove when loose, if the case will not come off check further for screws, sometimes hide inside water pumps etc, once you are ready to remove the cover, keep the kickstart shaft pushed inermost so that it stays located within the engine, once ready fully observe the location of spring mountins within the engine and replace the spring

Replace the oil seal and the water pump seal on the water pump. Bad seals let the oil and water mix in the gearbox. This raises the level of fluid in the gearbox and can leak out of the vent hose. tombones49_300.gif

I have a 1990 Honda XR 250 and when i kick it over the kick start ether jams and will not move but if i rock the bike back and foward in gear it will free but still no compresion. I havnt tried to crash...

You need to drain your oil, then remove the right side-case. When the side case is removed you will notice the kick-starter return spring will have a little tab that bends toward the center cases. that tab needs to be inserted into its proper place.>>( its apperantly has slipped out of place.) This is pretty common so don't be to alarmed over it. You will notice it right away once the case is off. If your not sure how the tab fits in place--try looking at a parts fish or go to the dealer and have the parts guy pull it up on the computer screen. I do not recommend bump starting it while that spring is no secured in its proper place.

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.
