What ya need to do is right click on the imagstation picture and go down to properties. You will see an address for the picture ending with jpg. Highlight that adress, right click, and copy it.

Then when you post hit image, post the address of the picture and you should be good to go.

Here I posted a few for ya.

This happened to my 98. It was from a kick back when trying to start the beast.

Oh ok cool i didn't know if i was the only one who had it or what but yeah there definately was a kickback. was urs in the same shape and how can u prevent the kickback from occuring again.

Come to think about my buddy's 98 wr400 kicked back and killed his starter. Probably in the same manner as what you are showing.

It happened to my bike before I bought it. It was during a desert race here in AZ. The racer crashed, tried to start the bike, had it kick back, finally started it and much to his horror the kicker didn't disengage. He did not know what the noise was, so he finished the 25 mile lap. It beat up the case aluminum pretty bad, but I cleaned it up, tried to smooth everything out in the cases, tapped the threads and put new bolt and plate back in with red locktight. No problems since, and that was in 99. As for stopping kickback?? :) I have never had it happen to me with this bike.
