KTM 65 Kickstart not returning completely

1 post in this topic

My Son's friend has a 2004 KTM 65 that the kickstart does not fully return. Its sloppy loose in the upright position and when the bike is started it clicks. I removed the clutch cover and inspected the mechanism and everything looks to be okay. However I am use to Kawasaki 's and Yamaha 's which have a hole which the large spring goes in to keep tension on it. The KTM does not and has about a half inch of play in the spring. I guess my question is, do I preload the spring? and if so how much? It just seems that the gears all move until the clutch basket is put back on, and when on the spring is covered up. Glad im a Kawasaki person!
