If you are having trouble moving the kick start try removing the spark plug, rock the bike backward and forward then try pumping the kick start a few times. If it frees up put the plug back in and try starting it

Your cylinder is probably full of fuel, becareful here. Disable the spark and kick it over with the spark plug out to remove the fuel.
Your problem sounds like a stuck float in the carburator. It needs to be removed and cleaned out good.

I have two yamaha tw200, the problem are, when i push the start button the start engine running but it wont kick in and turn the main engine. what can be the problem? the wierd part is when i have an...

I ha d a similar problem, so try the following. Screw out the spark plug and check its function. If it gives spark only BEFORE and AFTER eletrical starter works (when you push+relase the starter button) it means you have a weak battery. It doesn`t have enough energy to rotate the starter and give spark at the same time.

Put in a new spark plug and check plug wire connections and ECM ground connections.

You probably have weak spark and when bump started the plug sparks strong enough to run the engine.

A weak battey can also cause this. Your ECM needs a minimum of 9V to work. (the ECM gives spark and timing) When kicking over, there is not enough volts to spark. When bumping over the alternator provides the extra volts to start the bike.

Hope this helps!

I am having starting problem with Honda Activa. It does not start even after using several kick starts. I have checked petrol flow, spark plug. Please let me know how to solve the problem?

Check to see if you are getting any spark to the plug. You can get the testers for a few buck at Auto Zone (spark plug cable inserts into it and then you push the contact pin into the cable) when you kick start the bike the tester should light up, if it doesn't you may have a bad coil or the wiring to it may be loose/disconnected.
