About every 4th or 5th  attempt to start my D14 the kickstart slips to the bottom of its travel and does not engage.

I have had the clutch basket off several  times.

I have replaced the shim and spring on the back of the basket and changed the kickstart quadrant.

But it still does it. Any ideas anyone.

 

Regards. Robin

Hi Robin. When you say you've replaced the shim and spring behind the basket it makes me wonder if there is a wire circlip missing. The shim as you call it is a cup washer and should be secured onto the back of the clutch basket with a thin wire circlip. Without that the compression of the spring may not be enough to keep the ratchet teeth engaged. Other than that I think I did read on here somewhere that someone had a problem with the quadrant slipping behind the gear so it's worth doing a search on that. Good luck and get back to us if you need more help.

I had this issue a while ago.  Mine was a with pinion gear at the back of the clutch basket. It's a D14 Sports so sane as other D14s I believe.  It made all the difference. No slipping now,   but I changed the shaft and quadrant first. The quadrant needs to line up too,  but that was not my problem. The cup washer on mine and spring were fine.  I hope this helps.
