Hi all

As part of my D7 rebuild I need to replace the kickstart lever as the one on the bike is way past its best. After searching spare parts suppliers and Ebay it would seem that 3/4" spline kickstarts are as rare as hens teeth. There are a few available on Ebay from India but they are not cheap. I'm also worried about the quality of the part and the splines being a good fit.

Has anyone bought one of the Indian kickstarts? If so, can you advise if they are any good, fit properly on the splines and how long did it take to be delivered.

I'm not too bothered if I have a fixed or folding but I rather have a traditional shaped kickstart rather than the ones available on the Terry Weedy - Avery Products website.

I manages to pick up one of the SJ engineering ones.

Sorry to say it was marked as 1 in stock when I ordered mine and now its out of stock but part number helped me find more results


A test fit it looks snug and the splines lineup, the bearings are seized in mine so I haven't put any force behind it yet.
Also they don't seem to come with the pinch bolt so you will need that as well. 

Some of the others I looked at didn't seem to have splines in the photos, not sure if it was a photo of an unfinished product but something to look out for.
