Recommended Posts

Hey so r/s engine im

Putting kickstart shaft n idler gear in... All went in fine.. Just to me the gears arent meshing full gear to gear.. Its about 1/2.. I hope i explained correctly..

There meshing right just not full like even.. I rechecked n all parts are in correct.. Idk if its cause motor is on its side...the ratchet n kickstarter are working correctly..

Any input...

Is this normal then? I thought it would have more contact as well.

 

I have the thrust washer on the idler gear and it is facing the correct way. If you try to flip it the other direction it rubs on the mainshaft bearing.

Thanks for the help. I double and triple checked everything on the kickstart and idler gear and just kept scratching my head. Wasn't much for wear on the gears either to be able to tell where they were running.
