aussiechris Posted February 23, 2016 Report Share Posted February 23, 2016 I was wondering if this is common or just a one off. My less than year old, 2015 4RT has a problem with the kick start lever. The lug that engages when it's folded out has cracked and deformed. It seems the alloy is really soft. Apart from putting the lever at too much angle, I can see this is going to fail in the middle of a ride somewhere. This bike hasn't had that much use because it's not my only bike. And other bikes I've owned have never had such a problem even after 10 years of hard use. And before you suggest it, I am very gentle on the kick starter. The bike starts better with a slow push than a stab. I'm happy to purchase a new genuine lever but not if they are all this bad. Has anyone come across a decent aftermarket lever? Chris.
