2001 Sherco 2.5 kickback

Recommended Posts

Hi all. Here is a question for those knowledgeable in the ways of 2.5 Shercos.

When I go start it I get a kickback. It may happen once or twice but bike still fires after that.

In my experience the only time I ever got a kick back like this was with a PE250 and in that case it was sheared flywheel key and it wouldn't go until that was fixed.

In this case bike starts after a couple of kicks.

Any ideas? Familiar phenomena?

some of the older Sherco engines do have a tendency to kick back...I never investigated it but I think it's a lot to do with the kick start gearing which is quite fast and the short length start lever plus the lever is set higher from the ground, so when it does kick back you really feel it..I could be dreaming though
