View Full Version : having issues with kicker

09-19-2009, 1:27 PM
my 650 won't kickstart. after a 2.5 hr ride yesterday i went out to ride my bike to the bar last night & it wouldn't start. when i try to kick it over, it just feels frictiony & kicks trough. the motor kinda turns over but not even close enough to get it started. i push started it & it runs & shifts fine. what the hell's going on with it? anyone know? i did fill the gearbox with oil towards the end of my ride, if i overfilled it, could that cause this? that's my only guess? it kinda feels like the clutch is partially engaged.

nevermind - clutch cable was over adjusted. glad it was something stupid & not catastrophic!

Yup answered your own question....shit used to happen to me... Also, keep an eye or check your clutch adjustment on your plate. (3 springs) make sure they're all even as well. ride safe

Yeah, that avatar is killing me. I have to check this after my lady's in bed so she doesn't get jealous, thinking I'm writing to some naked chick!
