Key West electric and kick start aren't working
« on: July 05, 2017, 10:00:12 AM »
Just went out to ride my TGB Key West. The electric starter turned the motor over once but my thumb slipped off the starter button and now when I push it it just clicks. Also the kick starter is jammed and won't budge so it won't kick start. Any idea why the kick starter would lock up like that and why my electric starter just stopped working? I took the cvt cover off and the belt is fine and the kick starter mechanism is fine but I can't move the variator by hand. Could the electric starter be jamming the starter gear preventing the kick starter from working?

clicking noise usually is due to low battery.
charge it and see if a touch on the button loosens the starting gear .
