well i went to kick start it today and when i pushed down the the kick start it sounded like something was grinding on the inside and the kick start just goes down to the bottom really fast and it doesnt sound like the motor is even starting help?
I had same problem. The shaft was not broken. Take off the side cover, inspect the shaft, I found that one of the preesed on washers that go on the shaft had moved. Replaced circlip washer and has been running great for 2 months. Good luck
