    Kick starter -- can they be rebuilt?

    Just picked up nice "chrome" kick starter, unfortunately my neglected and rusted kick starter is much tighter and clicks. Curious if there is a way to restore the "kick and knuckle" on our kickstarts.

    Thank you,
    Gooch

    That takes care of the wobble when it's in the closed position?

    Barry must have a dozen good kick starters already Gooch, he already got a few from me....no just kidding

    You can easily rebuild 90% of them, you can also grind the detent a bit to get it to clip into place better.

    So I disassembled at the knuckle and the ball bearing stayed in place; did not drop out. Tried to push inward and no real movement?

    So Barry do you remove the spring and ball bearing, clean orifice, and just re-assembly and that's it? I'm thinking I could swap the 2 or 3 parts from the "rusty" kick -- she's still tight like...

    Ya spray it up and get the ball out. Get a new setup they still sell them and grease it up prior to reassembly

    Know, I do not think that they can be rebuilt, I have never heard anything like this before and I am not sure about this. If you are also not sure about this, then contacting a mechanic in your area could be the best possible way, but in my opinion it cannot be done.
