Well, the engine rebuild on the our CR125 went well and the bike runs great! Except for the fact that the kicker seems to be buzzing and when you kill the engine, the kicker jumps just a little. This apparently indicates that the kicker gear is not disengaging completely. So I took off the clutch cover and had a look. The shaft has a spring that attaches into the shaft at one end and the other end hooks into the engine case. According to the Clymmer manual, that little shaft hole should be on the left side of the shaft. But when I hook the spring up, the shaft spins around so that the hole is on the right. Is this okay, or is it possible that the ratchet isn't indexed properly in behind?
