Kick start mechanism
« on: November 18, 2011, 09:10:41 PM »
G'day all, the Sym VS 125 I bought a few weeks ago had a partially seized kick starter. This was not really a problem as the battery is new, but I do like things to work properly. Today, I swapped the clutches between the 150 and 125, (putting them back to their correct engines after a trial). While I had the cover off the 125 I disassembled the kick starter and cleaned and greased it. The difference is amazing. That unit was a 2008 model and is now better than my 2011 unit, so i guess that will be done next. Clean and lube, big difference and the best part was that I had no hassle what so ever getting the spring back in. :)
