Kick start spring tension
« on: 29.02. 2012 16:09 »
Hi All,

Just replacing my kick start quadrant - can any one advice on the spring tension? do I turn the lever through 180 degrees or a whole 360 before locking it on the clutch lever arm? A 360 turn  seems a bit over tensioned.

Many thanks

If I remember it finds it,s own position when the kickstart teeth are engaged and the anchorage bolt is clear I think that you will find it,s less than 180 degrees. all the best Goldy
