my bro is in the market for a new kickstarter and doesn't have the funds to pay oem or bbr. he has a 98 yz400f (one of the yzf's with a gimpy little starter) and ahs had no problem with it snapping or anything, but it is worn out (keeps poppping out while mx-ing) and he could use a little more leverage on the engine when starting (only like 125 lbs.) so a longer kicker would help.
anybody who bought a bbr kicker for style willing to part with your old stocker affordably?

take the old assembly apart and put a slightly bigger ball bearing in it

Thats all you need to do.
Just be careful when you pull the lever and the lever mount apart. A tiny spring and a small ball bearing will come out. Just find a bearing a bit bigger and he is good to go.

is that the gay little original L-shaped kickstarter that was prone to snappage, or one of the ones with the bend in the middle like what comes on the new ones?

If anyone has a short one off a 2stroke or aftermarket, I'd be very interested...
