02 scrambler 50 - stiff kick start
I bought this this used a year ago - it has run great except for a few things:
1) The battery died shortly after getting it, so I replaced it with a new one, charged it, etc and it has never worked (I assume it was not the battery that died)
2) Occasionaly when the quad is ridden it makes a clunking noise from the transmission?)
3) The kick starter is EXTREMELY stiff - but when it kicks over, it runs fine... (with the above exceptions)
I assume that the second two issues are related? I dont have a manuel for the bike, and I am wondering if the crankcase oil is low - I have no idea how to check, etc - I have not been able to locate an inspection window, etc.
any help is greatly appreciated, and feel free to make fun if these are stupid NEWB questions.
p.s. Yes I already searched the forum with no luck
