this shows you how the spring must go OK? the tail points at your belly.

the kickstart shaft fits on the tail, THEN you put the kickstart arm on with the arm pointing at 10 o clock (the steering head) and you wind that MF clockwise till the shoulder behind the shaft can sit on the sledge and back aagainst the stop. tap in with a hammer.

THEN fit the spring and the key. (yes it can be done after!)

Excellent thanks, I'll play with it tonight. I have some videos of me screwing with it so I may post one. I am not sure that the sledge was stopping the shaft like it's supposed to, so I believe that something has broke off.

Pretty good. What do they show, the rotational start and stop point?

Also, I have done some research and believe I now understand how the kickstarter is supposed to work. I had it totally wrong.

Yes, even though the kicker is on the left, you still kick down!

Got it sorted. What I predict happened is that the shaft became unseated when installing the case, so when it was "kicked", the mechanism got all sorts of messed up... and dug into the case.

Luckily, all of the damage shown in my photos has nil effect on the operation of the device when correctly installed.

I believe that this is a poor design on Husaberg's behalf. They could have added some sort of fail-safe to positively lock the shaft in place to avoid this issue. It is a common issue too which is annoying.
Thanks from tourist
