Kick starter locking up after stall.

Recommended Posts

This is my first RMZ, so I'm going to have a lot of questions for you guys.

Yesterday I stalled the bike while braking 3 times, and all three times when I tried to restart, the kickstarter was rock solid, just like the motor had seized up. So I put it back in gear and rocked the bike and was able to kick it, checked the oil filter and screen, nothing in/on either, pulled right side covers off and can't see anything unusual.

Could the motor have just been in a spot where the cams were causing the resistance? Hoping this isn't a sign of something worse internally about to explode since this motor is a brand new 09 with about 7 hrs.....

wow ! im interested in knowing why this is happening. i have a 2006 rmz 450 and i have never had those problems. i always bring the motor up to top dead center, then kickstart it !

It was weird, hoping nothings wrong and it was just the position of the motor, but like i said, new to the rmz so I dont know its quirks.
