    hey thanks for viewing, here is some info, i just got a 1990 tw200 electric/kick start a few days ago, but it was leaking oil, went to change the gasket, easy enough normally, but in the process the kick start clip wall got broken or was already broken but i didn't notice it, i have pulled it apart a few times before i realized the problem, because of the missing wall, the kick start wont return to its proper orientation the clip wont pull the gear back to its out of the way position, does anyone trust any product to re attach the piece or to make a new wall out of? people swear by jb weld and tech steel but i don't want to muck things up more if it wont work, any ideas you have of how to fix the problem are greatly appreciated, i don't really wanna lose my kick start

    I'm not sure I understand your photos and or what is broken. Perhaps you can illustrate with the exploded parts diagrams like are available at bikebandit.com. What do you think you need. I'm like you and suspect you can't use any miracle glue or ?? Tom

    Well i fixed the problem, after a long talk with my grandfather, who was a autobody/repair guy and a bit of a backyard mechanic, he really swears by the quality of jb weld, my uncle does too, both used it on many tasks, so i decided i didn't really have much to lose, i prepped the area by removing all oil and used lacquer thinner than used rough sandpaper and scratched it lightly with a razor knife, to give the jb weld a better surface to adhere too, cleaned it again with lacquer thinner than mixed the jb weld epoxy and put it in place, let it cure over night ( they recommend 15 hours but in total i gave it over 19 ) than closed it up and filled with oil, taken it on several rides today, works great, and i have great faith that it will hold now, as i used the sample i made for a few other little jobs with great results, see pic below, i had plenty of room to add surface area for strength there was a lot of wasted space that i used for extra reinforcement
