replaced kick-start return spring on '04 Sherco290

Last Sunday while riding at a trials school put on by team canada TDN I broke the kick-start return spring on my Sherco.

Note: the spring is broken at both ends... the little end has lost about 1mm of length that would fit in the locating hole on the kick-start shaft, this is what broke while I was riding. after removing the spring I wiggled the bigger end and it just came apart in my hand (as you can see), I assume the metal was just very fatigued after 7yrs of life.


Here it is with the new spring installed


and a shot of the interior of the case
