Hey Thumpers, My 1980 KDX175 no longer kicks! The lever works ok when turned by hand, but when you go to grab a foot full of kick lever, it freewheels, almost like there is no compression. There is compression though, the bike runs great when pull started. You can see the shaft turning, so it's not the lever. I suspect it is the mechanism. I have a manual, so I plan to tear into it this week. It looks like I can take the case cover off and access the kick lever mechanism and gears. I'll be sure and post the fix. Anyone know of any common issues with mechanism? I plan to replace the lever with the short 125 lever while I'm at it as well, these old KDX levers are like butter! Thanks all!
