So I got the bike home, but no further work to be done as no way to start it.
A Goggle on the web, revealed one kickstart for sale in the UK. Only £192 buy it now.
I measured the spline, and with what I read reckoned it was a 16mm spline, so I ordered a couple of pit bike kickers that supposedly were 16mm.
I didn't realise both were the same seller, the second one I ordered I thought was longer, however they both arrived in the same package only difference one was chromed the other was black paint.
It became obvious they were the wrong size, and although I opened one up some 3mm with a wedge, and it started to go on aided with a knockometer, I could see it was now oval, and likely to wreck the splines on the kickstarter shaft. I'd already checked the availability of the shafts, and If I thought the kickers were rare....
So that was already £35 wasted.
So one slide hammer later, it was in the bin and back to the drawing board. Almost.
In the meantime DRAG90 had been having a rummage, and came up with a kicker that fitted the spline on Christine's 500cc Honda in his workshop.
A trip to the fens later, and I was eagerly trying it for size. Yep, it was a fit.
Not perfect, but does the job. The knuckle looks stronger. This one is cranked, and needed careful positioning between the casing and side panel. It rests on the new £130 side panel copies from Indonesia, so to prevet wear I stuck a clear vinyl patch on the side cover. Job's a good 'un, and many thanks to DRAG90 for getting me back on the road!
