    I’m having trouble installing the kick start spring on my 1968 T150T Trident. Every time I install the spring & then kick the bike over, the spring disengages from the pin on the inside of the gearbox outer cover. The inner end of the spring is installed in the correct position on the kick start shaft splines, according to the early on line workshop manual. It appears to me that the outside edge of the spring is making contact with the beveled end of the main shaft / kick start racket mechanism & putting a side force on the spring towards the inner cover, forcing the hook end of the spring to disengage from the pin. What am I doing wrong here?

    Can’t really tell without seeing it. Any chance of a photo? Maybe you haven’t wound the spring tight enough.

    I have not wound the spring at all. Should it be one complete revolution?

    The spring is in the correct positon on the kick start spline according to the one line workshop manual.
