I picked up another Kickstart E50. Shout out to Bob's Used Motorcycle Parts

Remarkably, the kickstart mechanism worked from the Magnum X. I swapped the internals from VDM to the Magnum X clutch cover and everything glides and returns. The magnum X internals do not work in the VDM clutch cover, as they do not in the VDM clutch cover. The VDM intermediate starter gear is grinding against the Magnum X case.

The intermediate starter gear from the Magnum X compared to the VDM one is 81.3mm vs. 79.7 mm wide, 54.8mm vs. 53.2mm long, and a 35.7mm vs. 33.3mm working distance respectively. The gears have some slight differences.

Also, It appears that the VDM clutch cover slot for the intermediate starter wheel is in a different position from the Magnum X clutch cover, further down and back. I believe this is why the mechanism is not working.

I need to get another kickstart clutch cover if anyone is holding.

Three rusty screws broke off in the case of the Magnum X. I tried penetrating oil and two different versions of screw removal tools. Now there are broken extractor bits inside of the broken screws. I am going to try Nitric Acid. Is Ebay the best place to buy?
