Crf 250r kickstart issues

Recommended Posts

Hi. I've a 2004 crf 250r. My bike is difficult to start even after new valves and seat clean carb etc. I've noticed my kickstart lever doesn't seem to start turning the engine over till just before halfway down. This is stopping me getting a full kick. Is this normal? The splines are all fine on the lever itself. Any ideas? Cheers

. Sounds like you need to remove the side case and check the kick starter gear/ spring. I installed mine wrong one time and had the same issue, corrected it on the bench before engine install.

Yeah easy to check.. Make sure you pay attention to any washers falling out.. Hold shaft in while getting cover off...
