    Kick starting a 2000 YZ 250

    OK, this may sound like a completely novice question but here it goes. I just got my 2000 YZ250 and from what I remember, on a 250 when you kick it, your boot (at the bottom of the stroke) goes under the foot peg. On my YZ if I let my boot go under the peg, my toe collides with the peg. I feel I will tear a hole in my boot if I continue to kick it that way.

    I have since been kicking it like a 125 in that I slide my butt to the back of the seat and I end up with my foot on top of the peg at the bottom of the stroke.. It's almost like the kick starter is too short for a 250.

    The reason why I am asking this is it takes me a couple of kicks to start it because I can't really kick it too hard. Any ideas..... It's been a while since I owned a 250 but I never has this problem kicking James 250 or another guys 2001 KX250.





    Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    Mike, put a kicker on from an 02 or newer.
    Longer arm, less force required, toe further away from the right peg.

    You might want to check into this a bit more. I am pretty certain the kick shafts are 2 different sizes. I'll check again tomorrow if I get the chance.

    I just want to ba able to give it a FULL kick. I can see in pictures of the newer YZ's that the starter is longer and more twisted so I am looking forward to giving it a try. I looked on eBoy and didn't see any currently. I will keep on looking but if you see any, please contact me PM me.

    Thanks guys.

    Nope, I don't have one. However if I verify today that it fits I'm just gonna order a new one. I have Fastway pegs on my bike so it's even worse with those on there.
