The kick starter is designed for rugged service and will seldom require attention. However, if any irregularity should develop it is of utmost importance the engine be turned off and starter mechanism serviced immediately.

See Fig. 4C-2. A service problem will be indicated by starter gears ratcheting (clicking) with engine running, and starter crank upright as positioned on motorcycle. Ratcheting is caused by the starter clutch gear (6) teeth making partial contact with starter clutch (18) teeth, as the result of either a loose starter shaft nut (9), excessive crankshaft (11) end play or a loose starter crank gear cam plate (20).
