    CB200 kick starter shaft and starter clutch Q's

    Hi Guys. I've got a spare kick starter shaft that I need to swap because mine is broken off. I pulled the sidecover off and it looks like the engine cases need to be split to get at the other end of it. Is this right?

    The starter doesn't engage either. The starter motor runs but the engine doesn't often turn over. I have a feeling this is broken springs in the sprag clutch but is there anything else it could be?

    Thanks, Scott

    Yup - cases need to be split. Drain the oil, turn the motor upside down. You can take the bottom off without taking the top end apart at all.

    On the starter - could be something in the sprag clutch but could also be a broken/derailed chain. That can all be diagnosed/fixed by taking off the left sidecover and pulling the stator flywheel.

    Thanks for the reply Michael. The starter chain wasn't de-railed so I'll take a look at the sprag clutch. That's a bummer about the shaft, I was hoping I wouldn't have to take the motor out of the frame.

    Thanks, Scott
