While working on my Wr 250 F I noticed the Kick starter lever had a big gash in it from the foot peg. On further inspection the whole splined mount was loose on the shaft. Even worse the shaft is loose in the case. The lever hits the foot peg and bends in towards the engine putting alot of stress to the whole assembly. I have welded a larger tab onto the peg to stop the lever from following the curve of the peg. I also added a shim washer behind the kick starter to tighten it on the shaft and some bearing mount Lock tight. And no the bolt that holds the lever on was never loose, so this post is just to get people to check this out and prevent trouble. With these mods so far so good!
