Way been than stock , Crome is awesome!
This works exactly as claimed -- it clears a rearset foot peg. An added bonus is that it has a much better finish than the stock kick start lever in that it is polished perfectly smoothly and is actually round. Its chrome is done beautifully. A very nice little detail is that the circlip that locks the lever to its base is chromed too. Lovely work!
Excellent quality for the price. Clears a Daytona with Moto Carrera rearsets although the description reads '76 - '78. Very pleased.
Clears a motocara rear set nice
Overall the kickstarter is decent. Not the quality of the OEM but it solved my problem.
For $50...it's definitely worth it..especially if you consider your/my time to double bend the stock kick-starter (and hopefully get it right the first time) as well as the heating marks left behind. It comes with new washers, c-clip, and ball-bearing & spring. It also comes with large washer/shims to push out the knuckle if you need additional clearance. TIP: It might be difficult to get the new kick-starter on the end of the knuckle (the c-clip channel may get a little gnarly/flared with age)...after steel-wooling it clean, install the spring & ballbearing (use a little grease in the hole and on the spring so that it doesn't fall out as your installing the kicker)... Once the kicker is pushed down, but gets a bit hung up on the c-clip groove, use a 17mm socket over the top of the end of the kicker and then tap it down until full seated.
