I run a KZ750 kicker. Much better fit and clears expansion chambers.

...replace it with an early KZ750 Twin kicker.



Thx for the suggestion

Will straighten mine, but saw this on Ebay:
Kawasaki H2 750 kick starter. Very Straight, they are usually bent. Nothing worse then your foot slipping off your Kickstarter and then hurting you leg. Good splines. Not loose. Good threads. Will need re-chroming. This one is the 72/74 H2 straight design as opposed to the later 74/75 curved H2 design. Have those also.

Suggesting the H2B and C have a curved one, is this correct?

According to the resource site, all H2 levers are the same. http://www.kawatriple.com/partid/kicker/kicker.htm

They are ALL the same . . . But, I suspect some were cast from a different formulae of steel . . . .

OMG, I hope I am wrong, however there are 2 types. I will Post pictures if needed.

Probably a little off, the real sign that it is bent if the end tilts down and your foot could slide off. Very easy to straighten. Did 10 the other day, takes about one minute to do. A vise and a old empty fork tube all that is needed. There are 2 designs. With or without the curve. Later had the curve like yours.
Now it could be horribly tweaked also, which is beyond the one minute fix.

I bought a NOS one off eBay years ago for my H2c, it hit my stock exhaust. Still in my parts pile.
