I was putting in new clutch plates and somehow didn't get the cam follower for the auto compression release on the kick starter lined up when replacing the clutch cover. CRACK! went the piece. I pulled the loose broken piece out and replaced the cover without it. I figured I could just use the lever when needed. Well, my bike starts easier than it did before! I guess I can save the $18 bucks for the new piece. Has anybody else tried disabling this on their bike?
