I've been getting problems using the kick start.
I assume it drives through the clutch, so have assumed I've put the wrong oil in, as once push started I've been getting clutch slip while cold.
When hot it pulls really well no slipping.
If stopped for a short while kick start will work. Give it an hour back to push starting again :-( And I'm too unfit for that.

Tonight I changed the oil for a straight 50 it fired up at first attempt turned it of tried again starter just seamed soft and failed to turn the engine over is this a clutch problem, oil or kicker?

Phil.

Yes it drives though the clutch.

Not an uncommon issue. Not so much the oil, more a case of the clutch needing looking at.

Pull it apart and clean it all up. Check the plates for flatness and the fibre ones for old age/oil contamination. Sometimes the old oil just makes then useless. The springs are also nearly aways knackered by now.

I had all these issues on one of mine and ended up with new fibre plates (don't forget to soak then in fresh oil overnight) and a fresh set of springs...sorted.

While your in there make sure the centre clutch nut is tight and you don't have too much basket end float.

Basicaly all your issues are/will be due to a long period of lack of use.

Is there ay where else you can get clutch plates other than the owners club as this can be quite slow when you're in a hurry?

I'm feeling very stupid now my son Dan came out to push start me and told me to back off the clutch cable at the bar end.
God don't you just hate teenagers....

Hi

Whether for drum brakes or clutch discs, there is always the opportunity to bring the worn parts to the repair (garage ?) of trucks

Either they have the equipment to put the new pads, either they have the address of a professional who can do it
