Susuki LT230 Kick Starter Gear Postion

Not sure exactly on yours, the manual will be helpful, but on all the kickstarters I have worked on the pinion gear fits onto the crank generally the first 2 teeth go into that gear with the kicker all the way up, there is usually a half moon set of teeth on the pinion, it goes on the first couple of teeth and as you kick down you get to the end of the half moon and the kicker comes back up from the spring, i think that's what you are talking about. I may not have done a very good job of explaining it but you will see when you get the manual.

Show us a photo and we will tell you..  Some the gear winds along a spiral and into mesh as you kick, others are as Gw says, and some the quadrant parks up out of mesh, and some have a ratchet pawl that gets held out of mesh when they park..

If you tell me the year I'll look at a parts picture and probably suss it. If you've got a model designation with it's suffixes it would be good..

You're probably right..

Ok.. First thing is, do those gears have marks for aligning them to the shafts ? They might.

Anyway..   that gear 3 is going to turn anti-clockwise when the lever is kicked, and the big spring is going to return it clockwise till the stopper on part 10 hits it's stopper. With that shaft up against the stopper you need the gear 3 to be on shaft 1 so it's teeth are always going to be just engaged by a tooth or two, with gear 5. Gear 5 has to be on shaft 2 so when it's been returned by the big spring it's just engaged with gear 3's teeth by a tooth or two. The only other bit of trickyness is how much you should wind the big spring up by .. You need to put the spring into the shaft and then wind it up before putting part 10 on the shaft.. That might take a bit of trial and error.. It needs to be strong enough to lift the kick lever and hold it firmly up. but not run out of winds with another 3/4 turn..

      Thank for the add on quad crazy. I am new here and need some help with my atv. It’s a older Yamaha Timberwolf 250 that I purchased second hand from an person. I got it home ans started to look into it. He stated it needed a cdi box so I ordered one for it and a battery as well also a key switch cause it did not come with one. I put all the parts on it and when I hit the start button it just clicks and noting else. Thank you any help is appreciated.

      I seem to have no resistance at all on the rear brake pedal and no rear brakes. They were pretty good before I removed the right side crank cover. In order to get to the lower bolts of the cover, I took a piece of baling wire and wired the pedal in the down position. I assume, that caused at least, part of the brake problem. I can't see where fluid came out but, I did have to add more fluid. Added the fluid but still no resistance to pedal. Should I try to bleed the rear brakes? Thanks

      Okay, so I have a 2002 Rubicon 500…bought it last year and it sat for several months until I put a new rear axle in, FINALLY got that done and was super excited to finally have my wheeler going, just to notice a strong gas odor. Popped the seat off and sure enough, pouring gas from the carb overflow. Fast forward a few more weeks and get the new carb and get it in, no leak! Yay. Except now I have no spark. 😒 I’ve tried another plug and checked and am getting no power to the coil pack. I’ve read and read and mostly what I’ve found is ECU, which is fine…but I like to exhaust all avenues before buying the more expensive parts just because I don’t wanna spend the money and it have ended up being something simple that I overlooked because I was trying to rush. 😂 I don’t know if it’s relevant, but I read on another post that someone had similar issues with theirs and it was the sensor on the side of the carb, just a thought since this literally happened after I put the new carb on. It also displays “- -“ on the display screen where it should show the gear position.

      Hi All,
      When I get my foot off the throttle the engine brakes but the sound is not as it use to be = very loud.
      The noise began (not sure it is relevant) after I have replace the 2 u-joints on the rear shaft (between the transmission the the rear differential)  and engine oil change.
      Important to say that when accelerating all sound and works perfect, the noise is only when I get my foot of the throttle.
      Any idea what might be the cause?
      Thank you.
