The manual doesn't tell you anything. I did my Honda by setting the gear assembly in, turning it clockwise until it hit the stop, and then winding the spring once around until it fit in to the hole. The clutch has to be out to install the kickstart gear properly.

Gm,what the heck? Get a shop manual,it shows orientation and installation! You can look at an on line parts list,it will show all the parts,and order of installation.

My factory Honda service manual says "Install the kickstarter spindle and hook the return spring to the crankcase as shown." It has a tiny picture that cannot be made out. Real helpful, huh foxforks? Shop manuals don't tell you everything. In fact, there are some sections that are flat out wrong.

No matter what mis-fortune you encountered gm,surely would not have you swearing off the manual! If honda had misinformation they would have fixed it and changed the part number!

how many do you have? one of mine has like 8 pages that explain how the gear works, how to connect it, and service limits. It is as well a honda service manual.(clymer)
