Kick start doesn’t engage properly
RT325 wrote: Hi, guessing its the bike in your avatar so here's a link to an AT2 but they're all similar on those motors so 17 is a friction clip with an ear that fits in a guiding slot. If thats missed the slot lat time the cover was off then the gear won't move out to engage. If it 'is' that then if you lean the bike over to the right as far as you can & still kick then it should hold once engaged. I might add that this is just a guess at this stage.
Also, where is that clip supposed to fit you said it can get misaligned when the case half is put back on. How do I ensure I put it back together properly?

Gear looks awfully loose but could just be the quick movement. If I remember, I will take a picture tomorrow morning on how it goes together and what it should look like.
I get what you’re saying but from what I can tell they’re still lined up, but there’s enough play in that gear it is pushed away from the gear on the kick start shaft if any amount of force is applied

But--i'm wondering about 15 retained by 14 & is that bit broken & the hear is coming out too far & going past the intermediate gear above it. Otherwise might have to remove the clutch & check the small gear behind it which is the last gear in the system that finally turns the motor. The clip with the bent ear goes into a fairly obvious slot & without having a pic to view it should be at about 9 0clock if you look at it from the kick shaft angle--looking straight in. That clip puts tension on gear 16 to make it move out the twisted spline its on.
