TT600R Kick starter issues

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' started by methanol, Dec 23, 2005.

  1. The kick starter on my TTR has become very stiff and almost impossible to start. Was fine one day but then the next morning could hardly move it, any help would be appreciated.

  2. Does it move freely with the clutch in?
  3. with the clutch in or out it's still just as stiff
  4. Is there excessive clearance in the kickstart shaft? May have to drop the oil, pop the sidecover off & check out the gear mechanism as I have no idea :LOL: :LOL:
  5. be verrrrrrrry careful ......... a ttr 600 with a faulty ignition and a dicky kickstarter cost me my home ...my job .... my savings ...... and my health
  6. ??? :shock:
  7. could be automatic decompression cable out of adjustment or broken.
  8. long story ................ but .......... the short of it was it snapped my talis .... ( the main bone in ya foot) ... 6 months in plaster then 6 months learning to walk again.. and you work out what you loose when you cant work for over 12 months
