sounds like a lot of snake oil remedies for not building your motor right to me... I kick the shit out of mine and its a race ready 143 motor built by Chug's Moto Performance.

I always have a hell of a time kickstarting mine.. bumpstarting is much easier. I was talking to another guy about them and he's thinking the motor just doesnt have the volume of suction to pull in the vaporized fuel since it's a 2-stroke carb on a thumper.. the motor is a Kitaco 143 w/ head and a PWK. I do know I need to drop the pilot a size since it has a hard time with low rpm, main jet is spot on though. plug looks new, clean gas and filter..

what is the countershaft? I have been trying to get my son's 08 klx back runnin and it sounds just like you said, a ratchet! Now I went and bought him a big guys klx and I have an electrical problem...just did the light green wire bypass, still wont run, intermittent spark, pulled the stator out of the old bike, still nothing..so frustrating! Esp. since I just spend all of my money on a "new bike"...ugh.

On my klx somtimes I can kick it and it feels like it misses the gear, it still has some force behind it making it hard to push down, but then i kick it again and it catches the gear and starts, what makes it do that?
