SOURCE: yz 250 wont kickstart

Hi!
You obviously look after your machine and very sensible when laying up, however as you are probably aware 2 strokes rely heavily on compression, A. to produce excellent combustion and B. to draw fuel into the chamber. So when you try kick starting you can't get enough revolutions to draw the correct amount of fuel into the cylinder, where as you push start you constantly turn over the engine increasing compression slightly and bingo it fires.
Can you remember how when kick starting it before this problem the feel on resistance when kicking over? has it now become a lot easier? if so you possibly have worn or broken compression piston rings.
A compression test will reveal this, I hope this sorts your query?
Press the Blue button please for my FREE effort,
Thank You!

SOURCE: i recently bought a yz 125 01, it was working fine

Yes , it seems that the case is broken which might require a welding and machining to fix. The engine cover has to be taken out for doing the job while the fault has occurred due to negligence. The kick start has a shaft with a bush which would have developed a play and thus the pressure was applied to the cover due to the play on the shaft,-- hence the oil leak .
Take estimate from a known mechanic / machine shop for the work before you start on it.

SOURCE: can a cracked 2008 ktm 85 sx be welded?

Yes it can be done, but Ally welding is not something for a novice. Find a local engineering company with a good reputation and they should be able to help.

Is it definetely the crank case, if it is than it is a big job, if its just the outer cover you can start by removing the kick start, cover and anything else in he way and see how much damage there actually is!!! You also have the option of having it welded if parts are too expensive, service manual will give you full details
