Gilera 500 Saturno kick start question

Post by Badgerman » Mon Oct 17, 2011 10:07 pm

Hi guys - just brought a Saturno after wanting one for years. I think I am being dumb, but at the moment the kick start does not do anthing, you can just kick it until it reaches the stop but the engine does not turn-over. Is there something I am missing to engage the kick start?

The engine starts on the starter no problem...

Thanks for your help

Jamie

Hi

in most of these cases somebody has removed the right cover and was not able to remount the kickstarter in the right way ;)

Are you able to read german?
HP has posted a nice description with pictures.

If you still have problems, ask again ;)
Maybe i can do a translation.

Good luck, Joachim

PS this is also described in the workshop manual

Hi James,
I'm looking for a kick start lever if you fail to get it working :roll:
