I believe that on these models the retaining clip is internal,and the shaft seats into a bearing at the other end. If the bearing has come apart it will allow the shaft to slide in and out also. Drain and check the fluid for metal or excessive shavings. If it were external, you should be able to see the groove for the clip with the shaft pulled out. Most likely, you're going to have to pull the engine, and split the cases to get to the tranny in order to fix the problem. Pain in the arse, I know, I've done it a few times on my dirt bikes. Assuming this is the DR250 enduro style dirt bike I'm thinking it is. If I'm wrong on the bike type let me know, and I'll see if I can get more info, cause I believe Suzuki also made a DR 250 S in the late 80's or early 90's, which was a sport bike.

1998 Harley Davison Evo starter boggs down when trying to starten


do you have commpression releases on your motor if not you may need to in stall this will ease the stress off your starter and your motor will turn over easier if you do have the releases not sure what you may need to do without hearing the drag to determine if gearing is issue

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.

Hi i have a custom chopper.whan i try to start the bike its look like the battery don"t have the pawor to spin the motor.the battery is good and i try to jamp start and its still not spin the angin strong...


WHAT KIND OF CRANKING PRESSURE DO YOU HAVE? MORE THAN LIKELY, YOU WILL NEED COMPRESSION RELEASES IF YOU ARE NOT RUNNING A STOCK MOTOR. CHANGING YOUR RING GEAR WILL ALSO HELP A LOT. PRIMO RIVERA AND I'M SURE OTHERS HAVE THE RING GEAR YOU NEED. IT HAS LESS TEETH THAN THE STOCK RING GEAR. I RUN A 116'' S&S TWIN CAM WITH 210 LBS CRANKING PRESSURE. I HAVE AN ODDESY 925 CRANKING AMP BATTERY WITH S&S COMPRESSION RELEASES AND THE PRIMO RING GEAR. NO MORE PROBLEMS. PHONE NUMBER, 714-624-1915 NAME'S JAN.

Replaced starter gear then torqued to 5 lbs,fired up,fine? replaced primary and now wont start?


Well, first off....Dont try starting it anymore without the primary, it can damage the gears. The problem you describe is common with custom builds. I'll assume you purchased the correct stock jackshaft for your model and installed the lock plate and everything else correctly. You can tighten the jackshaft bolt to 7-9lbs. Your last step is putting a wrench on the assembly and pulling it out and turning 1/4 turns to make sure its not binding, as a last resort you can bevel the jackshaft bushing on the out primary so it goes in smoothly - thats what I did on mine and it works like a charm. Good luck

No power to the wheels


ok bro' couple of things going on here. we'll start with the starter haha! how does it start you ask? the starter button hots up the sarter motor with the 12 volts dc which engages the starter gear wit the CLUTCH BASKET which has a ring gear in it and of course the starter is spinning and it spins the clutch basket and pulls on th primary chain if your fatpunk I mean fat boy is stock and pulls on the motor sprocket and turns the motor. If no motor power to the wheels and no starter power to the motor then something in between is broke. so I think the clang you heard was the demise of your primary chain or the clutch basket or the engine sprocket I think the primary chain is most likeley. so take it easy off the line until you hop it up proper son it ain't no hot rod til you drop some mods on it
