If ure kick start has Siezed do not try and kick it till it Loosens off, ive heard of so many people just Kicking it and snapping the thing up, mine seized a few days ago so i thought i'd show u guys how to fix it without having to pay 50 quid for a new part
1x 8mm Socket 1x Ratchet 1x Flat Head Screwdriver 1x Hammer some grease or oil
1) Remove the transmission Cover
2) The Bendix wont have engaged properly and you'll see it trying to chew on the Half Cog bit
3) Gently Tap the Bendix either way untill it starts moving by placing a flat head screwdriver onto the Forks and tapping it with the hammer,
The bendix will start to move and will eventually pop off
4) At this Point you should grease the Bendix, then push the Kick start halfway round and slip the Bendix back on then gently pushing the bendix into the cog allow the kick start lever to gently come back round and ull see it engage the bendix and pull it back in
Now put the Tranmission Cover back on tight making sure you dont catch the rear wheel brake cable when tightening the bolts up and try it out!
hey Ally,.. great job on the pics. Did you have to remove a snap ring after removing the kick arm?mine has one,.. (that was worn) that was part of my problem with the kick start staying engadged. did just as you did,.. except replaced the snap ring.
There's actually a tool which makes circlips extremely easy to use. It has two little prongs on it that open and close like scissors. I bought one by mistake, but it has come in handy soooo many times!
