Hi guys!
Since I bought my 99 WR400F in 2003, it has had a rattling sound that comes from the kickstarter. It seems as though the kickstarter is not "tight" anymore and it is now sounding like the kicker is engaged a little. Are the 2 seperate problems? I saw a post about a spacer/stopper, but the pics wouldn't upload, and I don't know much about these bikes... what i do know is that I LOVE THEM!!!! This bike has been put through hell and back, and is still as strong as the day I bought it!

One other question: does anyone know where I can get some black plastic for this bike? I can't seem to find it any where.

Thank you Thank you Thank you for helping me!

I would be willing to bet this is your problem... read the posts about how to check to see if it's your kick shaft stop.

Good luck:ride:
