It sounds like your kickstart return spring has gone. The noise you hear with the kickstart still down is because it is still engaged. Dont let this happen, return it to the upright position. You will need to take the case cover off and have a look. On many bikes this spring can be replaced very simply, on others you may need tp strip the engine further. It would be worth investing in a workshop manual.

2009 HERITAGE SOFTAIL STARTER HOT GRIND


That does not sound good. I suggest you get it to a dealer before you do any additional damage.

I have 2004 TTR-125 and the kick start has a problem... When you try to kick it it makes a grinding sound... and some times when you kick it it makes the regular kick sound but only does it half way down...


It sounds like you have damage to the gear on the kicker shaft or an idler gear that rides on it or both. Either or there is likely metal bits loose inside the engine.
Pull the spark plug and with the ignition off work the kickstart through it's paces and see if you can kinda tell things about whats going on. Is the nasty sounding bit always in the same spot as the crank rotates...hard to tell but suffice to say if you're hearing nasty gronching noises and meeting resistance when kicking you got trouble inside. If you meet any serious resistance I wouldn't push it.
The kick assembly can be accessed via the side cover....bit of a job but not too big. Biggest part will be making sure all the metal bits are gone.
Take care.

Kicks back when cranking also grinding noise


THESE BIKES ARE EQUIPPED WITH ONE WAY CLUTCHES ON THE STARTER DRIVE. WHAT THEY DO IS HELP TO PREVENT ENGINE DAMAGE IN THE EVENT OF A KICK BACK. IF THIS HAS HAPPENED A LOT, THEN THE ONE WAY CLUTCH COULD BE DAMAGED AND BE IN NEED OF REPLACING. THIS WILL ALSO CAUSE SOME OF THE GRINDING NOISE YOU ARE HEARING.

Dishwasher making loud noise


Newer washers are designed with a food grinder inside to help grind up large pieces of food. What you are hearing is the grinder doing its job. You do not need to worry about the noise. It should go away after a while as the food particle is ground up.

Starter just spining


I would try to start it again and all I get is a spinning and whining sound from the starter. It is as if the starter is not engaging somehow. A while after it cools down the bike will start agian. Does anyone have any possible answers. Thanks in advance!A lot of the starters are designed so the bendix shaft shears if it sticks to the fly wheel or over torques. If you remove the starter, connect a pair of vice-grips to the bendix gear. Jump the starter with a pair of cables, to get it to activate. The bendix will probably kick out, but not rotate. You should hear the armeture spin. Otherwise, the bendix will kick out, and you'll hear the armeture hum. If that's the case, check to make sure the fly wheel has been ground down, on the side facing the starter. However, you would probably hear grinding not spinning, if that were the problem.,,,

1998 pontiac transport montana starting problems


It could be the starting motor is faulty or was not installed correctly, particularly if you are finding it turns over the engine slower than it should (dragging and dragging down the battery voltage). When starting the car, the teeth must mesh properly with the ring gear or all sorts of strange things will eventually happen. Alignment is controlled by shims on the mounting bolts and if they are the wrong ones or missing, also usually bad news.

Sounds like the colorwheel (used in DLP projection sets with a single DLP panel) is going bad, either the wheel itself or the bearings on the motor driving the wheel are starting to fail. I would recommend getting a professional to service the TV set.
