RE: FE 650 kickstarter not returing.

Does it move freely and just no spring lifting it back? Broken spring maybe, more likely someone took the cover off and the kickstart pawl is out of place (unless it engages like a kicker should).

FE 650 kickstarter not returning

Spring not broken . Side cover has been off. kickstarter pawl out of place? photos or advice on how to repair would be helpful. Bike was raced as a supermotard so things may have been damaged.

The kick activated decompressor can cause return issues.

Next time it sticks down give the decompressor lever behind the kicker a shove/wiggle to see if it is the cause.

Make sure the cable is free and adjusted correctly as well.

Husaberg actually abandoned this feature on later bikes- a smart move given the headaches I've seen it cause.

RE: Re: FE 650 kickstarter not returing.

hello rowan

welcome to UHE mate!

could you add your location and the model of your bike to your signature?

ok

it's in the doc rowan. probably under 'rebuild'.

regards

Thanks Guys,
Scrolled thru Forum last night and got some ideas, problem maybe cresent shaped retainer.
will make a new one, as this seems to be a common problem with this model.
But will check out the rebuild.

RE: Re: FE 650 kickstarter not returing.

stick it in your signature mate.

we have a coupkle of kiwis here. go into forums, then members and go to the bottom. do a search and try to get to location in alphabetic order and also go for K - k for kiwi..... people use that name a lot but we have only about 3 members here i think. one is a dealer i think and has givn us quite a bit of help with rear shock work.

BTW, love my rugby and still play - aged 46. look at the "taff's crescent mod" in upgrades in the doc just incase you want to try it. if you are 5' 10" plus it really is worthwhile!

talk soon

RE: Re: FE 650 kickstarter not returing.

The return sledge and the cresent shaped "case brace" is what was bad on mine...BUT only after only because the spring had lost tension. I got all new parts for about 28USD from Kurt at Bike Barn in Medford Oregon. Hope this helps....I had to learn the hard way and take it apart and put it back together twice. Order yourself a new spring !!!!!

Forgive me for bumping an old thread....Im trying to find the thread or the Doc on why my kicker wont return.

i recently got the bike, just trying not to go into it blindly.

Thanks in advance.
