Kickstart...stuck?

Recommended Posts

Well it's getting quite cold out here in the North East, and I like to start my '02 450 at least once a week to make sure components stay coated in oil.

Well today, I pull the kickstart out, go to kick it, and the thing won't budge. Kicked over fine last week.

Engine is not seized - I could still pop start it. Any ideas before I pull her all apart?

My guess... There's usually a boss on the inside of the case that the spring sits. Well it can brake, my guess is it broke off n jammed up the kick gear
