kickstart malfunction

1 post in this topic

Working on a 98 400YZ that had no kickstart return. Removed side case and found alot of scrapes and scars in the aluminum including one hole all the way through the center case which had been repaired with JB weld from a previous problem. Now it seems we have the same problem. I guess the question is ... is this a chronic problem on the early 4strokes? We looked up the parts and Yamaha does not make available the actual ratchet paw that I need. You must buy the whole entire kickstart mechanism just to get this one piece. ($142) Anybody else out there had these kind of problems and can shed some light on it I would appreciate it.
