Kickstart goes doon (no very easy) but disnae come back up. Knock it into gear, pull the clutch in and start pushing but the scoots still in gear (clutch is adjusted as far as it will go). When the rear wheel turns the kickstart wants to turn wi it.
Whats away....the clutch ?? or is there a return spring/sprocket for the kickstart thats buggered.
Any ideas before i split the engine to find whats went wrong
could be that kickstart piston has come out,broken or is loose and jamming maybe clutch circlip came out (does clutch feel like it is working ok ) best just to take casing off and check remember you will need new casing gasket and gearbox oil have fun wi all the wee bolts espesically the bridge piece one merry xmas
Thanks boys, knew you's wouldnae let me doon. Clutch seems fine (no any different to what it was) and thanks for reminding me of the bridge nuts
I'm off next week so will remove the casing and see whats what. Stu i'll pop up and borrow Stickys book if thats ok. If i've got summit showing me whats needing doing i should be fine but i'll SHOUT if i get stuck

Took the engine apart today and the kickstart shaft has split. Straight job (famous last words) o replacing the shaft. Next question, GP200 engine, LI150 gearbox, LI150 chaincase what shaft do i need GP or LI, see MB's flogging the whole kit for a GP for £48 but states LI casing would need drilled oot for it to fit, a dinnae fancy that, what dae yis think
you"ll need li min!!!!!! ive a few in my garage if woodys no been in there or stu or taity!!!! theres defo li yin might be a sx yin and a gp yin so you are welcome to try or gee case ti ye brother then ti woody and i"ll put it on fi ye auld yin all fi a bottle o double max
Nige,I had the same problem a wee while back.I think it depends on which gearbox end plate you've got in,Li or GP. You will need to measure the length of the shaft you have in,there are 3 different ones according to Stickys bible!Early Li is 67.5mm,late Li/Gp 65mm,Indian GP(thicker shaft) is 67mm.The measurement is only the length of the actual shaft which goes through the case,not including the splined bit at the end.Hope this helps. All the best to everyone for the New Year!!!!!!!
