How A Dirt Bike Kickstarter Works (How To Kick Start My Bike)

How a dirt bike kickstarter works is via a lever that is pushed down with you leg. The kick start lever is connected via a spline to a sprocket, which is engaged with another sprocket that’s connected to the engine’s crankshaft. When the kick start lever is pushed down, this turns the engine over and the engine should start. The benefit of having a kick start on a dirt bike instead of an electric start is the bike will be lighter.
