    Removing Kick Starter from Honda cl 175

    Have a '73 Honda cl 175. Kick starter appears to have "let loose".....not fitting tight, has fallen loose..just hanging. Not sure how it fits on, but need to remove to inspect the situation closer. After removing the tightening bolt should it just slide off the shaft? I pulled and pryed a little bit but didn't want to too much. Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    Yes it should just pry off....I used to knock a large flat blade screwdriver between the gap in any pedals or kickstart levers to help loosen the grip of the splines. Be careful not to spread it too much as the damn things have a tendancy to break in half. I reckon if there has been no warning...ie the kickstarter slipping... the bolt has come loose. Check the splines for wear...typically they will be rounded off on the tips in both the lever and the shaft. Put something between the lever and the case...piece of wood or similar to prevent cracking it


    Good luck
