1987 xl250r kickstart spindle?

Recommended Posts

I have 1987 xl250r and I am having trouble with putting the kickstarter back together. I assemble the spindle as described in the the service manual but when I kick it over the kick start lever does not return. I replaced the return spring that did not help. before I put the clutch back on it seems to be working properly. Is the the large 27 tooth gear on the spindle supposed to disengage from the clutch gear after you kick it to allow the kick starter to return?

thanks!

Hi...Several months ago I replaced the idler gear and the kick starter gear on my '87 XL250R...From what I remember the spindle had two collars that meshed together and allowed you to kick start it then allowed the spindle to return to original position. Your shop manual, is it the green and white one? I have that one, it was really comprehensive. If you don't have that one, I could eMail some pages to you. Let me know.
