rmz 250 siezed kick start whats the damage?

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody. What happend is I was on the track on Sunday I say I done about 10 laps give the bike a break went back on the track on my 3 rd lap it came to a hault I tried to kick it over and the kick was jammed so I put the bike in gear give it a little push tryed the kick and it worked so I got the bike started to get it off the track just near the pits it done it again tryed putting it in gear again and pushing it the bike moved but the kick was still stuck so we headed home got the bike in the garage drained all the oil what was fresh the day before 1000ml and the water witch was full of engine ice it had New air and oil fillter to.So we took spatk plug out and clutch casing all the cogs look fine no teeth missing but there is a bit of play in the kickstart cog witch has caused it to move and catch the engine casing by the look of things as there is a mark at the side where its been catching leading up to a big crack in the corner of the engine casing. We took the other side off and turned the crank shaft bolt witch turned easy so hopefully the piston and rod should be ok as any1 had this problem befor and dose anyone think it could have caused more damage to the inside of the engine I am home at the weekend and Will take pics any help will be much appreciated thanks.

You going to need new rod bearings, going to need to check bottom end tolerances, and make sure the rod and crank where not damaged. You can go to rockymountainmc.com to check out diagrams or use your owners Manuel. If youre not experienced with tools and working on your bike, then I suggest you take it to a reputable technician

So why I had the engine apart I went and orded a hot rod crank kit comes with con rod any body had any experience with these before. I will be getting a fully qualified mechanic to do the work and all bearings and parts will get checked and hopefully the bike will be back up and running.

I just built an 2008 rmz 250 for a guy. I send my crank and rod to mr.crankshaft for a rebuild. The oem cranks are balanced way better than the hot rods cranks and rods are. Just letting you know. The guy does awesome work. I would probably have a new timing chain put in there also while I had it down and Atleast some new rings on the piston also
