Trying to replace a bad crank in 1996 kx60

I'm trying to replace the crank in a 1996 kx60, but I can't seem to figure out how to get the magneto? off the bike. Have all of the bolts out of the left side, have the nut off the magneto and have a gear puller on it, but it won't budge. Is there a trick to getting this off? Is there some sort of lock washer or something in there?

The engine is off the bike and on the bench. Once I get that off, I presume that I should be able to tap the casing with a rubber mallet to get it to split.

Appreciate any suggestions.

SOURCE: 97 fatboy starter engages but will not stay engaged.

I would check the starter clutch its self first. It is a one way clutch so if you remove the starter and disassemble it to the starter clutch and hold the starter clutch in one hand and use your other hand to turn the starter clutch gear, it should only turn in one direction.

SOURCE: KX60 2001,losing oil from crank casing and won't start.

it could start without oil..... but the amount of damage you would likely do to it makes it very unwise. if all the oil leaked out there was oil in it when it was started before. if i'm not mistaken that case is aluminum. if you can find someone that does tig welding (i think it's tig for aluminum).... they could probably weld that crack without taking the motor apart..... just a thought.

please take a moment to rate this solution.. thanks

SOURCE: Harley hard starting problem

highley doubtful on exaust leak causing problem first make sure your battery is up to the task do a load test if that looks good do a draw test on the starter if not there it starts to get ugly that motor came with a torrington bearing on the sprocketshaft as they wear they develop crankshaft runout not a real big issue till your running straight gears on the camshafts which only tolerates .001 runout you could be binding there

Does anyone have an idea as to what is causing this issue?


These cars have a history of bad camshaft sensors. This would be my first suspicion.

The voltage regulator may be bad, will need to unplug magneto and use multi meter and test magneto for voltage output on milliamp scale with the engine cranking, If voltage is present when cranking then the voltage regulator is bad , if no voltage then the pick-up coil and stator will need to be replaced.

Your right side crankshaft seal are bad, which can be a sign of worn crank(main) bearings. Its possible to replace the seal with the engine in the frame, but may not last if the bearings are loose. For a reliable repair, the engine will have to be pulled and disassembled.

Poulan Pro 200 Leaf Blower won't start. I have installed a carb kit with no results. The spark plug was wet before the new kit---it continues to be wet. I have tried a replacement spark plug with no...


Ok. Good job on doing what you could, right off! The simplest things are the most overlooked, and the most unforgiving.

So, you know your plug is wet, so you got some fuel flow.

Now let's figure out the plug no-fire problem. (This is under the assumption you haven't beat on this blower with a sledge-hammer at one point. The whole "key-way" is fried thing.)

1. Grab ahold of that plug THEN crank away. One time will tell you yes or no on spark. No, I am not joking, and yes, it is better than staring at the end of a plug and wondering if your eyes are bad.
In fact, better than a cup of coffee......in a bad way.

2. Check your kill switch. It is either: Grounding, or Open (open like it should be, UNTIL you push it, click it, or slide it, whatever you got). One CHEAP and fast way: Unhook the kill switch.
Then crank away. No spark? Not the kill switch then!

3. Check your spark plug GROUND. Let's say you got some shocking results from grabbing onto that bad boy. NOW check where the plug meets the cylinder head when she is screwed down in there. Believe it or not.....if it is funky, she won't ground right!
Hence, no worky.

4. You got no spark at all.....STILL. Let's look over your Spark Plug WIRE. Is she wore through? Is SHE grounding out? Has she heat failed? Then do #5.

5. STILL no spark. Let's check the last 2 things......
Rotor Magnets, and Magneto (ignition coil).
IF you have a volt/multi-meter, hook her up to the plug wire. No juice = Bad Magneto, or Bad Plug Wire. SOME juice = Good Magneto, but Bad Plug Wire (in some mowers/weedeaters, etc., remember that the Magneto is where the kill switch hooks too.
See if it is somehow grounding you out, by being loose but still touching the cylinder, etc.)

6. Failing Magneto. This can happen, and it does. You get SOME juice, just not ENOUGH juice. 2-Strokes make a lot of heat, even Magneto's give up the ghost after a while, sometimes. In this case, find a replacement!

Suzuki is reving high for a long time and loss of power


When you say revving high, does that mean without you applying the throttle? If so, you may have a bad crank seal. Have you been noticing more smoke than normal? A drop in transmission oil? 
Crank seals do go. The magneto side can be replaced without pulling the motor. the clutch side, however....... This I know from personal experience!
