Kickstart assembly question

Kickstart assembly question

Post  philipburton on Fri May 19, 2017 2:28 am

Hi Guys

Have a Cruiser 68 (Correct model this time)

The Kickstart works, and the round spring housing with a single hole in it is on the shaft between the kickstart arm and the engine spinning freely, as there is no spring.

The kickstart works, but obviously have to manually bring the kickstart arm up.  Ive ordered a spring from Villiers Services, and thats winging its way to me.

I dont have the very end round cover and screw, which is parts number 49 and 50 in the attached photo.  Can't locate anyone who has one or can sell me one.

My question: Is this bit critical to the springing back of the arm? If it is, and I suspect it is, would the answer be to bolt the arm to the inside spring housing that is currently rotating freely.  This would make sense to me, but I want to hear if anyone has a better idea.

Thanks again for all of your help!

Phil

Spring cover

Post  piston 197 on Fri May 19, 2017 6:12 am

YES ! the cover is necessary as this keeps the spring restricted to correct size of coil and assists in locating the spring peg into the casing and kickstart shaft, I find it hard to believe Villiers did not have one ? suggest you contact them and get one put in with the spring ?
I have photographed the rear light hump for you and am still awaiting a p.m. with your Email address to send pictures

Kickstart assembly

Post  FB vincent on Fri May 19, 2017 6:45 am

The aluminium end cover (49) 'Cover, Kickstart' (part E8265) and screw is purely decorative and many bikes run around without them. VS had a reproduction batch made some time ago.

The inboard (45) 'Cover, Kickstart spring' (part E8174) is indeed critical to the operation of the return spring.

Kickstart Assembly

Post  peter@dunfordconstruction on Fri May 19, 2017 8:19 am

Villiers Services Definitely have Parts 49&50 they recently supplied me with two. But please note you have to to do the cut out for the kickstart yourself which is a bit delicate.
