can't kick JR50 in gear- please help

Recommended Posts


I pulled the side cover off my daughter's bike to do the 1st gear mod.  I didn't finish because the arm is harder than Chinese Algebra and she wanted to ride the next day.  So I put it back together (still with just 2nd gear) and had a lot of trouble getting the cover on with kick starter shaft and clutch disengagement arm aligned right. All is fine but I have to kick in Neutral.

Is there some trick to getting the kick starter shaft/lever/clutch arm aligned right?  I like to think I'm a fairly skilled mechanic, but this one has me messed up.  I want to pull it apart and get 1st gear as well as get it to start in gear.
