    Desperately wanted CL175 Kickstart Pinion

    Hi, Im a new member and not really good on PCs (senior years!!) I have a CL 175 1971, Ive stripped the engine down, carefully bagging and tagging everything and lots of photos, I need amongst other things a new or good s/h kickstart pinion gear, pt. no. 28211-235-020, mine has half the teeth missing, no wonder the kickstart didn't work!!! had no luck finding one, so hoping someone on here can help me out. Fair price paid and I will of course cover the postage, I think its the same part for most of the small twins. Many Thanks Martin.Mob 07742417234.

    Not mine, but I think this will do it. Includes more than you need, but has that pinion gear:

    Many Thanks for the replies, looking how this works it doesn't revolve fully on the shaft only half a turn, so could I take it off, turn 180degrees, put back on and I would then be using the virgin cogs that haven't been used? Am I being thick or would this work? Martin.

    I'm pretty sure that I've read of that being done.

    It wasn't an option on the non functional kickstart on my US imported CL175

    I wouldn't do that, the reason they lose teeth is from a PO kicking it over while running. The teeth are smashed/ground off . The pinion gear wasn't designed to be abused like that and it's expidentially more likely to fail and fill your engine with bits of metal

    Welcome to this amazing forum.
    I concur. Things are only going to get worse unless the pinion is replaced. I wouldn't take the chance since you already have it apart. A little Honda Bond goes a long way Good luck and keep us posted.
    Knowledge can never be taken away from you!

    I fully agree with that, it's what I'd do. Just that I had read about folks turning the gear around and chancing it.
