Hey all, I have a pretty serious issue going on. It all started when the kick starter would go past the spot where it would normally stop and hit against the case. Also, it would not disengage so you could feel the gear inside the case spinning if you held onto the kick starter. Long story short, I had to replace the shaft because the stopper on the inside was cracked and was slipping on the splines of the shaft. I removed clutch and basket, water pump cover, and the rest of the side case to get to the shaft. After assembling/disassembling about 6 times, I got it right. The kick starter wouldn't return to the top and was stuck at the bottom, and i think the spring kept popping out of its spot. Well, I got it all back together. It started up and now makes a grinding noise as it starts and runs. I have no idea what it is. Any ideas? I have had nothing but issues and the bike is getting sold after this is resolved, so I need to get it fixed. The kicker here, its not even my bike. Its my brothers. I've replaced the top end, float needle, cleaned power valve, and I think I did front fork seals and wheel bearings, greased steering stem bearings, and who knows what the hell else. This has been an on off project since this happened in March or April. Its not that I'm not mechanically inclined or don't know what I am doing. I have no clue what is the issue. Hopefully you guys can keep my hair from going grey and falling out!
