  • Another gp460 issue..

    My gsr46r ran great, but when I went to ride it again it wouldn't start. It's very hard to pull/turn over, and I noticed the front sprocket is locked up. I took the head off, no piston or cylinder wall damage. When manually moving the piston with the head off, it feels like something is binding or sticking in parts of a revolution, and is generally tough to move. It started taking a lot of pulls to start, then would start with barely any effort once warm. Could that be my piston ring? I just installed a new one, as well as a new chain. Could I have blown the clutch running a new rear sprocket with a lightly used chain (tight spots?), or is it seized? Thanks for the help+wisdom guys.

    gsr46 with ddm dominator, .005 copper gasket, and ddm pre filter/filter.

        I have the red clutch savers in now, but I do still have the stock yellows. Is there a DIY online? I looked in to it before buying my gsr but couldn't find one. I guess that's good news eh? Could be worse. I bought it used, so I'm not sure how much use the stocks have but it was only a few months old when I got it. Should I just swap in the stock yellows or is it a waste of time? thanks guys

          *actually, I'm not sure if the springs are red or not. I was just told they were clutch savers, and I thought the PO mentioned them being red but I'm not sure.

            Grey springs from ddm are clutch savers, I'd get them

              You can also run pocket clutch or the TMclutch setup up

                I got the clutch out, and the clutch springs appear to be perfectly fine. Also, the pull start is still difficult with the clutch totally removed

                  I'm still totally stumped. I have read that a seizure would involved metal on the piston ring, but mine looks perfect. Cylinder walls appear great, no scoring. Only thing I have noticed is some dark brown at the top of the cylinder walls, but it's been there since I got it.

                    check the coil so it's not rubbing on the flywheel.

                      I am such a rookie... That's exactly what it was! I didn't think it would slide down, but it did. Thanks guys!

                        well it's great that the issue was resolved
                        set the gap with a business card
                        so now it's time to go for a ride, post a pic of your scooter!

                          I went for a quick spin earlier, it runs good! I have used a business card on my bigfoot, but the 460 has the coil by the pull start, not the flywheel. I'm not sure how to gap it like I did the bigfoot.. Here's a pic

                          I love these things! I got my first one when I was 20 (23 now), but lived in FL+SC as a young kid, so friends would have them from time to time. They're not as common up here in Maine with all of the hills. But I have 2, and my room mate caught the bug and has two now as well. We used to ride 20+ miles/day 7 days a week, but with my new work schedule it's less consistent. Are there ever cruises in New England, or is that just a California+Florida thing?
