My plan was to get this running before taking it to bits so the first this I tackled was the kickstarter as it was flopping around and I had a feeling I was going to need it.

I’m no stranger to kickstaring big 4-strokes but I had a go at hoofing this one and kept wrapping my foot around the passenger pegs.


I drilled it out to 9mm and made a new stainless shaft but I don’t have a grooving tool small enough for the e-clip groove so I just drilled it for a pin instead.



This fix worked very well and it swings in and out with a satisfying click and doesn’t wobble at all.

Its also not touching the sidecover anymore, happy days.

I haven’t decided how I’m going to finish the kickstart as I cant afford re-chroming.

I might just paint it but I will think about it for a bit.

Carbs next.
