Yz loose kickstarter

Recommended Posts

Is there any way of disassembling the kickstarter in the joint so i can inspect and minimize the side movement(if possible) because it's quite loose and i think it's going to make noise... New one is not an option because this one is still ok for me. Unscrew the bolt but everything remains firm....

Take the philips head screw in the picture out and it will pull off of the base with a little force. Watch out for the ball detend and the spring that are in there, they will most likely fall out. If you take that apart when it is new and grease it then they tend to stay tight way longer. I did buy a bike with a loose kickstarter once and I tightened it up by wrapping some thin shim-stock around the pivot shaft and putting the kickstarter back on it. I just had to cut out the shim stock for the ball detent.
