Loose Kick lever
Posted January 05, 2012 - 05:39 AM
Very new to the dirt bike scene and bought myself a 1999 wr400.
Lovely bike and running well just a few maintenance bits to do before I get it out.
My only concern is that there’s a lot of wear on the rear brake lever/kick lever where they're rubbing together because the kick lever is very loose. Is there an easy fix to stop this? Or is it a new arm?

take the screw out and pull the lever from the knuckle
clean out all the crap. Take the little spring and ball out too. You can get a new spring at the Home Center. I bought an assortment package of them. Regrease everything,stick the spring and ball back in the little hole and push the kicker down over it. Becareful not to let the little ball shoot across the garage or even worse back at your face if it slips around your finger.
I have save many kickers just spending a few minutes on them. The added pressure of the new spring may work enough to keep the kicker in and from bouncing around.
If not I think I have a 426 and a 450 kicker in the garage somewhere
