Anybody got a kickstarter shaft?


Apr 3, 2009
I could use a spare kick starter assembly shaft. The one on my "rescue bike" had stripped threads, so I welded it up and retapped it, which is holding up OK, but I expect it will eventually fail... I think strong threads have to be rolled on, not cut. Fortunately, this is a low stress application.

I suspect more then one person had the "slipping kickstarter" problem, and ended up buying a whole ebay kickstarter assembly to fix it (which it would). But that problem is caused by worn dogs, so your shaft is still fine. I restored my dogs with a file, so I just need the shaft.

Anyone have their old one as an extra and kicking around in a box somewhere? This is for a 95 and up bike.
