I've searched and i couldn't find any real answers with regards to different years and part compatibility, specifically the Kickstarter shaft gear assembly.
I have a 1996 Yz250 and i need to replace the kickstarter shaft gear assembly (not the kickstarter lever, the actual shaft, gear etc in the case). I was wondering what years of other yz250's i could use if i can't find a 1996? Would a 1990-1998 work? 1990-1996? 1993-1996? 97? etc..
The problem is the kickstarter only catches about half way down and doesn't give me enough of a stroke to kick the bike over. The only way to starter her up is by bump starting. The motor has just been rebuilt and runs like a champ so i know is not due to lack of compression or related. Got spark/fuel/etc. So i know thats not the problem.
Thanks for looking and for your help!
