This is kinda weak piece of 500cc motor.
Inside of kicker spindle, this piece gets worn out then kicker doesn't engage with gears...
$5 piece but you can't start bike...
79 Nori's Triumph special got trouble with kicker too.
Clutch was always sticking each other.
then this thing happend.
Kicker can turn the gears but main shaft doesn't turn clutch center...
There are 2 things I could imagine.
1 this half moon key was broken
2 Main shaft was broken
Fortunately his case was 1.
Save a lots of money instead of buying new mainshaft
knock the half moon key off
Slot is OK
Another $5 piece made you non start Triumph
