I'm having a problem with my FA50 kick starter: It does not seem to engage inside the case to turn over the engine. The lever functions properly and springs back fine, but there is not any engine turnover function. I'm going to pull off the case side this weekend to check it out. A couple of things...
Is there anything to watch out for when I'm pulling the case off.. like things falling out etc.? Anything spring loaded in the starter mechanism other than the lever itself? Can most of these repairs be done with the case/motor on the bike?
Also, assuming I get it fixed , what is the preferred fluid to refill the case and and to what level below the filler plug?
Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving!
