Refitting Kickstart Shaft

Recommended Posts

Hi......I've just replaced the kickstart assembly on my '84 XR with an '86 one. It's exactly the same as the removed assembly but it's whining/ratcheting.

I've only now sussed that I was supposed to load the return spring with a twist before locking the shaft in place so this is the problem I guess.

Could some kind soul tell me how much I should turn the shaft &....as I'm an ever bigger numpty day by day....in which direction please!

Many thanks/Steve
