Update

The process to fit this is to remove the section from the bearing carrier for the kickstart once the carrier has been pressed into place.

Anyone have an example?

Anyone have a picture of one with the section removed? If I have to modify the one I have I'd like a pattern to follow?

Yes

Thanks Darryl,

You're correct. I located the kickstart in position and without the section removed the kick starter ratchet pawl won't seat. I've sent photos to the manufacturer. See the alternative from Hugget.

I'm sure if you ask my wife

I'm sure if you ask my wife nicely she will let you take it at a very good price! They do come up on carandclassic.co.uk every now and then, milweb.net sometimes have one and Dutch Lion motorcycles have them occasionally BUT it's a definite case of buyer beware. You'll find a yahoo forum called Krad...

Side car ball

Thanks Jeff,

I've ordered a longer ball from one of the suppliers. I hope its long enough, I believe it should be 80 - 90mm, but the longest I could find was 75mm.
