When i go to kick start my 97yz125 and i give it gas(only when its hot) sometimes its like the kick starter kicks back. I guess its from the gas igniting or something or me not giving it a good enough kick. How bad is this for the kick start mechanism(sp?). I couldnt imagine it being good. Should i be worried? Another thing, i havent changed the tranny oil in like 5 rides. It didnt seem to do this before that. Could the old oil have anythiing to do w/ it?

no not good, but not a big problem either. I think we all experienced that so now and then. Better give a healthy kick, though.
I once almost broke my foot when i kicked my bike with a sneaker wearing.
it is a 250, and i am light weight.
