My neighbor has a 2004 yzf 450. he had a serious crash last weekend. Serious enough that stitches were too much hassle..he got super glue, the scrub brush treatment, and needs new goggles due to his shattering in his face....obviously, a bad one. His 450 is ok...the only damage is an odd thing. His kickstarter functions properly and will start the bike. However, the upper return travels too far and does not hit a solid stop. Whatever stops the lever no longer works. Is this a broken case? Swapping a side case is no big deal, but it sounds liek $$$$$. I would like to surprise him and fix this myself if possible. Thanks for listening. I tried a search, but everything was related to non functioning kick start levers.
