My First Hybrid Failure

Postby Rjcapt » 08:57 pm Nov 05 2012

I have probably 150 hrs on my hybrid so far and I had my first breakage to date.

I modified the KX kickstart lever to work on the KDX motor. Worked great until yesterday, when it sheared off at the pivot point. The aluminum broke right in half, the mounting boss (steel) is intact.

I'm going back to the KDX lever. Anyone have an extra????

Look through here.


This is a much better solution than the stocker or Fredettes lever, IMO.

I've had one on my hybrid for ~4 years now. It is the only part that ain't worn out.
