Not starting

Post by Long Beard »

Be kind.

New to Stella. I have a 2012 4T
I thought I would just adjust a few things.
I wanted to check the spark plug. Everything seemed fine, so I put that back in.
I fumbled for a bit with the clutch cable but managed to adjust it fine.

I put everything back together.
The electric start that was working fine, does nothing now.
I try to kick start and mostly the kick doesn't move. Sometimes it'll give, but not really (relax I"m not dumb enough to force it).

What happened? I don't feel like I did anything that would cause it to not start, but that's where I"m at.

Does it rock back and forth? It isn't stuck in gear is it, that would explain if the kick starter wouldn't depress?

The de-clutch switch can prevent starting with the electric start.
