I Ride:
Chromed Steel Kickstart Arm Available.

I bought boxes of very early kickstart knuckles back from Sweden and also those circa 2000-2003. So I made an arm up using the Husaberg knuckle and the aftermarket kickstart arm.

the first photo is of the standard set-up:


this is my first attempt which I've since sold so that it is getting used and tested:


if you look, there's a little 'nose' on the front which if I grind and remove will allow the kickstart arm around one more tooth but leave bare metal that can be painted.

here's the nose:


basically, I had to drill the arm out to 16mm so that the knuckle fitted, make a circlip groove and then it also has a spring loaded ball and a drilled recess in the front to locate the kickstart arm in the 'closed' position.

I also drilled ever so slightly off centre if you look.....

but the second effort will be a lot better.

I sold this one for 75GBP inc VAT which is 63gbp outside the EU.

it is a proper job to here. I also lockwired the rubber on. the idea is that in the long run, I get the top arm made to my specification.

be interesting to see how long the rubber stays on for someone who has to relentlessly keep kicking it. I suggest that the rubber will roll off the end....

regards

Taffy

...and it looks like it's slightly shorter so it'll fit a '94 engine in an '03 frame with a Clarke tank?

yup, and shorter coz you don't have to kick so hard when the decomp is done right!

made of steel it feels like granite too!
