74 r 90/6.
Bought this and not familiar with bmw much. Got it to free up. Soaked up cylinders. Kick start was off shaft for some reason. I installed it it billy it doesn’t seem like it is in correct position. Will not fully kick in this position ???
I also ride a '74 R90/6 for 12 years, and I read that the consensus about kick-start is don't do it. The reason is that the gears mesh in such a way that bits of very hard gear-tooth material is chopped loose and floats around inside your gearbox causing damage. I removed the lever as soon as I heard this. I use a Shorai battery and have never yet had a no-start incident so I don't miss the kick-start feature. I am happy to see an old Airhead being resurrected!
