Thanks RR, I was wondering how to use that lever. It seemed to be turned the wrong way when I looked at it. Tim

I've never tried using mine. Any danger of kick-back?

I would have to take a brass wheel to that and maybe a little naval jelly.

That yellow 76 in my avitar, I miss daily. Should have kept her.

What year you got, Les? I believe it was only the '75 that had the kick starter.

Nope. My '76 is s'possed to have one. At least it's got the rubber covered port by the generator anyway.

What year is your bike? Mother Honda felt that there was no real need for the auxilary kick start, & dropped it with the 78 model..

is the kickstarter working? I was thinking of keeping it as a permanent starter(since I like kick starters soooo very much),and drop the electric starter.
i wanna go fast......and smooth:)

It All Depends On The Running Condition Of Your Bike... I've Seen Some That It Never Wored On At All, Like My 75, Low Compression, And Some That It Works Every Time, Like My 76....

Is the lever supposed to spring back up? Mine is quite difficult to depress then I have to pull it back up. It starts, but groans as I lift the lever back up.

No Spring, Or Kick Back, You Should Have To Lift It Back Up, Thats Normal, A Well Graesed Bike Will Return To The Top, But Not With Any Presure
