kickstarter lever going getting stuck in backside of footpeg

Recommended Posts

Have a drz 125L and the kickstarter lever goes down to the point that I have to pull it back up. I have the clutch cover off and I'm looking at the manual/parts diagram, but don't see anything wrong. Nothing looks worn and all pieces are there. It's been doing this since I had the engine rebuilt by suzuki dealer.

Can't take it back it's been to long. It hasn't bother me much, I was doing other repair work and figured I'd check out this problem.

Anyway.....when I kick start it the lever goes down, sticks and then a grinding sound happens. I pull it up and have no problems with it. When I opened up the case thought maybe I would see a little wear just from the grinding sound.

Any ideas???

Alright, upon further inspection I found a groove that is being caused by the kick start gear. Did the mechanic leave a part out and now the gear is rubbing the casing.

Checkout the pics
