Kickstart Shaft fitting

Post  storkfoot on Tue Nov 07, 2017 3:18 pm

I could probably do with putting up a picture, but let me try and explain first.

I am used to Series 3s and the way the kickstart shaft fits into the sidecasing. I can see my Vega is different!

I have changed the O ring on the shaft that fits in to the casing. As there is no oil seal, am I correct in assuming that this O ring is all there is to keep it oil tight?

Secondly, am I correct in saying that there is no circlip holding a shim in on the outside, ie in between the shim and the kickstart kever?

No circlip on mine

The whole of the Kickstart mechanism is a bit on the loose side and you have to be careful on fitting it does not slip

Thanks, Ed. I have just found a couple of shims that are a decent fit so I’ll have a mess with them.
