slipping kick starter

Recommended Posts

ordered everthing from honda....xcept the shaft..and of course the ratchet spring is on backorder..at least the couple places i've looked..

i read about a updated stronger spring.. but cant find one..i also read about back cutting teeth..sounds like good idea...but im not filing new parts and dont want to split case if thats only a temporary fix and dont want to tear my factory oem gaskets i installed a year ago..them guys werent cheap...any ideas...i will do what i have to but i want to fix it once and for all

Stretch the spring to increace its free length, will result in more preload on the ratchet.

 

Next develop a different starting routine to make sure the ratchet is engaged before putting full weight onto the kicker. I used the later to extend the life of a slipping ratchet until next teardown.
