Metal shavings in crankcase of Baja Storm 125

Recommended Posts

The title pretty much explains it all. When using the starter I can hear it spinning but not engaging the engine. The wheels also do not engage with the wheels when the clutch is out. The motor has compression if that helps.

I am new to engine work and repair and I bought this quad with the idea of fixing it up (not knowing the full extent of the damage). The previous owner said it ran but sat for a year (I don’t believe that for a second after opening it up) and had bought a few new plugs and a starter motor, none of which fixed the issue.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I have attached a few pics of what I think could be wrong.

So when in gear and you let go of the clutch its like its in neutral and noting happens? Are you using the pull start to crank it? Aren't those semi auto or do they actually have a clutch?

Yes. When I push the quad with or without the clutch there is no engine resistance. This type of quad has a CVT so there might be something I am missing. There is no pull start (only electric). Thanks for the reply.

Oh and I am cranking it with a wrench.

As long as it’s in neutral it should not have resistance with or without the clutch.  So if you put it in first gear or any gear for that matter the engine should resist with the clutch out and very little resistance with it pulled in.  So first I would go through all the gears one by one and see that it’s changing gears properly. After that I would look at the clutch actuator that expands the clutch. It’s the lever on the side of the engine where the clutch cable connects to.  There is a shaft back there and that rolls the clutch out. Based on the metal chunks it sounds like you maybe blew a gear.

As I stated previously the quad is equipped with a CVT and does not have gears to run through. Also the starter is not connected and when I crank the engine the large gear on the crankshaft that is connected to the starter gears slips past the shaft. Is that normal?

Your not being clear ! Does the bike have a clutch lever ????? 

I don’t think that bike has a clutch lever but your saying yes so be clear on what your saying and we can help.

The quad has a clutch and a CVT. The clutch does not appear to do anything as the engine does not seem to be connected to the wheels regardless of whether the clutch is pulled in or not.

The clutch is only for starting and stopping, not for running through any gears.

How does the lever feel when you pull it in? There should be a spring loaded type pressure.   If so and you can see the clutch expands on pulling the lever then it’s working. It’s most likely something internal. Maybe a shaft or gear and will involve pulling the flywheel and exposing as much as you can without splitting the engine.  If not then your going to have to yank the engine. 

But before you do all that. Have you checked the drivetrain to see that any of the drive shafts and yolks are not broken including the rear differential? 

Start with the simple stuff first before you go deep.

As I said before I am new to this kind of stuff and completely failed to notice the clutch cylinder. Would this result in the clutch not disengaging?

Thank you for your reply.

That’s not a clutch!!!!!!!!!!

But like you said new to this you are.  That’s a break cylinder. And that’s a break lever. 

I knew you were not explaining it correctly.

I am totally confused now. If the quad does not have a clutch then why do the wheels not connect to the engine? And how could I bump start it?

Back to the starter not engaging I believe the thing that I took a picture of in the second to last image is shearing off (if not completely gone already). Could that be the cause of my issues?

Thanks a lot for your help.

You can’t bump start a centrifugal clutch.  It works on expansion and revolutions. The faster it spins the weights in the clutch expand grabbing the housing and the wheels spin.   

Im not 100% familiar with your engine without looking at a manual as well as the angle of the pics you sent but if you removed the clutch off of that shaft and your seeing shear marks I would guess that’s your problem.

What came off of that shaft ? 

Post a few more pics of the engine maybe from a little further out. It’s hard to make out where your taking the pic from.

So based on the pics it looks like something was taken off of the shaft in the pic? Is that correct.

On the other side of the engine, is there a cover that’s much different ? the clutch assembly is generally bigger and it’s a  larger size cover. Like I said I’m not familiar with that engine but the premise is pretty much the same as other engines.  

I’m just wondering if you have taken anything off.   

Is that the left side of the engine your showing ?

I did take off a gear and the flywheel from the shaft in the pictures above. The left side is very different from the right side in appearance and size. Thank you for all of your help today but it is getting quite late where I am and it is difficult to see with my dim garage lights. I will continue working tomorrow.

Here is a picture of the left side of the quad. I believe it hosts the CVT as the end of the cover leads to the chain that turns the wheels.

      I have a been given an old suzuki ltf4wd. It goes, but I think it has a problem. When I hit the starter button, the starter turns quite well for about 10 seconds then it bogs down a bit, and then the motor starts to turn over. Is that normal? I am used to engine turning every time the starter is engaged.

      One company is selling a piston, but upon further inspection it is an LT50 piston that they are saying is for the 2006 Suzuki Quadsport LT-Z50. Yet the LT50 Piston is not interchangeable with the LT-Z50 according to the pistons listed by Suzuki.

      The clutch cover goes on and fits, but the little L chapped arm that has gear slots is concerning me.  It appears it goes to wear the clutch adjust bolts are on the cover. 
      Is there a specific way to tell how it mounts on the gears in relationship with the basket?
      I don't want to deal it up unless it's right
