Need Help...

Alright heres the problem. My kid was on his dirt bike and ended up stripping the kick start,wouldnt be so bad but he stripped the splines off the shaft too.I got a new kick lever but it wont grab. We drilled a 11/64 hole thru the lever and shaft to pin it but cant find anything strong enough to hold.Ive tried steel rod, stainless nut and bolt. Anybody got any ideas?

Its not how fast you get there,But the condition you arrive.

I'd opt for a new kick start shaft. Does that involve tearing into the bottom end?

Remember, this is a kid's bike. Odds are you won't have it too much longer. Anything other than OEM or good aftermarket kit parts will hurt resale. This is null and void if the bike is more than 5 years old. Still, most dirtbike parts aren't that expensive so I'd opt for that route.

Yup, new shaft. If you weld it the seal will melt = oily mess.

Yep, that what we're gonna do. Ordered a new shaft and showed the boy how to push start in 2nd gear. I didnt want to tear apart the cases while he can still ride. Thanx for the help.
