Any guidance on this is really appreciated. I’ve been reading through some of the threads regarding this on trials central (hat tip lineaway) but still have not figured out what is going on. We replaced the water pump seal and large crankcase gasket under warranty yesterday on my wife’s new bike. We tightened the cover in the order of bolts given by the service manual. We noticed that when the two bolts near the kickstarter are tight, it does not return by itself, but when loose it does. Trying to figure out where this binding is taking place. If the case wasn’t putting binding pressure on the shaft before, why would it do so now? Anyway to check this? We did remove the detent bolt on top And retightened with kickstarter halfway down. This was prior to noticing the two bolt loose/tight effect. Since it is returning when the two cover bolts are loose, we were hoping that we would not have to reset the kickstarter shaft mechanism. Any thoughts or help are greatly appreciated!
