250 kickstart stuck
« on: February 26, 2018, 07:07:16 pm »
Have a 250 my boy was riding it the other day, was riding and starting just fine. Then he shut it off went to start it again and it was stuck. Tried pulling it backwards, and popping the clutch neither worked. Thanks for the help in advance

With the quad in neutral.
I'd start by pulling the spark plug and attempt to turn the motor over (just to rule out compression)
If the motor is still stuck try pulling off the head to inspect the bore and top of the piston.
IF everything looks alright and I would not recommend this next step unless confident, you can take a plastic or rubber mallet and attempt to GENTLY shock the piston loose.
(Before everyone jumps on me; I did this at the dunes with an 85 which was fresh off rebuild with no run time and seized in the bore. Do what ya got to when your 400mi from home and no one stocks parts for an 85/86)
If that doesn't work pull the clutch cover and inspect for metal shavings/shards.
Still nothing then I'd guess seized main bearings (which is most the probable conclusion, but I'd cover the other bases because it's not going to cost you anything extra just to check)
I'd like to hear back what you find.

Sounds like the engine is going to need a rebuild.
