Hi Guys Busy restoring My 1984 P200E

Could somebody explain to me why if I try to kick start the bike the kick starter locks up like the gearbox has selected to gears as soon as you move the rear wheel forward/backward it seems fine if you kick it a couple off times it does the same

Thanks Fanie Cape Town SA

 

Hi,
it seems you have to open the engine/gearbox to check and to fix it.
Maybe the kickstarter actuating spring coil has been broken or there is so much old oil inside that the whole stuff sticks together and doesn't work anymore.
