Put your kick-starter bolt back in until snug. Pull your kick-starter out as if you where going to start the bike. Leave the kick-starter out and remove the bolt. The flange of the bolt will make contact with the kick-starter and force the kick-starter off of the shaft as you back the bolt out.

THANK YOU VERRY MUCH, Will go try that right now!
