I have a lay down g/box and find that the kick start doesn't seem to engage until it's about half way down. I can still start the bike (ES2) but it would be so much easier if I could get a good real swing at it. Any clues as to the prob. I'm assuming that the inner section of the kick start gear is worn or the kick start pawl is worn.
Any views before I stat ripping it apart?
My AMC box is diferent , But worked for years with the Pawl in upside down till the first time needed in the IOM when it gave up the struggle. A recent new mates 650 did the same thing and yes,the pawl was in upside down. He now thinks I have some magic diagnostic ability !! some hope.
Good point, Robert. I'll check that.
