Kickstarter depression

Replaced waterpump seal, and had to "reset" that kickstart spring(6 times up to now). I heard it pop out a couple of times. The last time I bolted the case up of course the kicker wouldnt ratchet back. I removed the case and put the kicker back on it....works fine. Starting to think that the spring didnt come off the shaft every time. Always checked it for proper action before installing the case. What would be causing the kicker to get bound up like that?


Note the case goes on nice no fight..seats completely then careful tightening

After setting the mechanism, install the cover carefully trying not to bump the kickstarter shaft too much.
You can lock it up by bumping the shaft around too much during installation.

put 1mm washers behind the sledge plate. I use the same copper washers that go on the rocker cover externally. 100% cure everytime.

Ok thanks guys ill try that shim thing if I don't have any luck my next attempt..im starting to think not have a kicker aint such a bad thing....still have not really had a chance to ride this thing but ive been wrenching my ass off. Ill post up with the outcome.
My next issue will be addressing the random stall thing, well not really random it sometimes stalls on deceleration after mid to high acceleration..after I get that case issue resolved ill get to ride it and get more data to chew on...thanks in advance

Thanks to Taffy and his video on this. I went back and watched it again a realized I had clocked the shaft incorrectly. As a result I boogered up the key and plate slightly. Should be good to go when the parts come in.

I cry everytime I work on the kickstart, I sob uncontrollably at the thought of it, it gets me down, It is so sad, so like, well, there's no end to it, I can't go on, it has to stop, I can't take anymore, it's all over, the end is nigh, what is left in life, this is is it, this is the end, this is

Kickstart depression.
