First of all thanks for this group. I’m brand new to the forum but the knowledge I have found already has been great. So here we go. Ive got a 1981 XS50. Honestly I’m not even sure if everything is original. It was made into a cafe reader/scrambler before I purchased it. I was having electrical charging issues. I replaced the rotor and that fixed the problem temporarily. The bike started acting up again. Battery was not staying charged. I found that the connection from the bikes wiring harness to the rectifier had a burnt wire. It was either the bottom right or bottom left white wire. I was able to fix the wire but again the bike’s charging system failed on me once again. So I cut the connector off of the wiring harness and the rectifier. I wired each wire individually together. Turned the key on, hit the start button and got maybe two cracks before the starter quit working. Told myself that’s fine I‘ll just use the kick stater. Now the kick stater is extremely difficult to use and will not kick over. The bike wants to kick me back every chance it gets. I took the spark plugs out and the kick starter moved up and down smoothly. I put the spark plugs back and the kick starter is back to wanting to kick me back. No chance of kicking over either. The compression I think is good. I was riding the bike less then a week ago With no issues. Please help me out.
