A few days ago i let my friends (who know nothing about these bikes) ride my bike. I honestly don't know that much about these bikes but I know enough about them to be able to start one. Anyway, long story short my friend broke my pull starter while I wasn't anywhere near him. I'm pretty sure the rope just needs to be restrung but I'm not 100% sure. On the inside of the pull starter, you can see the rope go around a few times, and then on the outside there is a section of rope a few feet long with the handle still attached. It doesn't budge. Any suggestions on what I need to/should do?

they are always the first thing to break..... take it off the bike, the spring is probably poped out... you will see it right away e hex nuts off and remove it...remove the handle from the rope, undo the hex bolt inside, remove the spindle (round plastic piece the rope is tied around. now the spring is going to completely undo itself from the spindle(the spring is a flat piece of metal roughly 6 feet long that is rolled inside the plastic spindle).simply reroll into the spindle, making sure it rebounds the rope and doesent expel it from thee housing... re assemble the center hex with washers pawl spring and plastic fitting,and tighten it good... put the rope through the hole of the pullstart housing, then back through the handle... voila....


youtube has ALOT of videos about taking it apart and putting it back together, and you can find a tutorial on these forums too...
