broken kickstarter

Recommended Posts

When I was riding the other day and tried to kick my bike it kicked like it had no compression, but it bump starts fine. Did the starting gear or something inside break?

an XR100 has no kick to it, you can start it with your hand. so dont let that throw you off. but not being able to kick and being able to bump start means your valves are out of spec. and i didnt know that could happen on an XR. well i guess it could but mine never did it and mines a 1993. i have CRF's now <450> and i know valves are a semi problem for them. im going to have to say valves. i dont think thats right but thats my guess
