    question abt kick starter on cb350k

    I'm picking up a 1968 cb350k this weekend. the kickstarter will fire up the engine. however, he says it sit's kind of near the riders peg- this doesn't sound right to me. sounds somewhat broken....

    Is this a big deal???

    bike has low miles, runs fine, good tank, rebuilt carbs, new petcock, no bad rust, all original for $700.

    looking at the assembly on line, i'm guessing it's the return spring???

    Anyone know?

    You can't really know until you see it. If the bike kicks over, the return spring is not broken.

    Many bikes share the same size kicker shaft and someone could have replaced the stock kicker with one from another bike. Happens all the time.

    By the way, a clean '68 350 is a good bike to own.

    if its the return spring, its under the cover and attaches to a lobe on the shaft. there is a boss that it also hooks to on the engine case. i have seen those snap off. it could also conceivably come off, or not be connected correctly. if its anything to the inside of that, you have to pull the motor and split the case.

    I may be pointing out the obvious, but isn't it possible, since we're talking about a splined shaft, that the PO installed the kicker too low?
    Perhaps a removal & re-install might fix the problem?

    sure, could have slipped, but that seems so obvious. but, hey, sometimes obvious is, well, not so obvious!
