Sign of Idler Gear Problems?

Recommended Posts

What are the signs of a chipped idle gear tooth?

The clutch is awful noisy and goes away when the lever is pulled in. Also, when kickstarting the lever seems to skip a tooth every now and then. It's around the same point so I'm assuming it's the pawl gear slipping from the idler gear. I pulled the cover and the pawl seems fine but I can't see the back of the idler gear to know if it's chipped.

I must be too hard on this thing. It's one thing after the other it seems!

When it does not start anymore, the starter gets stuck and when it sounds like the rod is knocking. Otherwise ride it till it blows up.
