    well i found out why my kawi didnt want to shift outta 3rd... i split the cases (that was fun) and found this....


    upon closer inspection, the cast aluminum kick start spring guide fell apart....and thats most of whats left....after cleaning the crap outta everything with carb cleaner (highest velocity aerosol i had...LOL) i found this in the case that i didnt see before....more bits and pieces...

    thankfully it was just cast AL and not steel, so the gears all appear to be fine yet....:clap

    already ordered a new guide, since it wont work right without it...LOL
