I am still having trouble with my kickstart. Sometimes it kicks back on my foot hard enough to break it. I have hard soldered and heat shrinked all wires to the Boyer including the harness under the tank. It has a brand new ignition switch. I am getting a good hard 12.48 volts to it and I have cleaned the ground wire. I hard bypassed the killswitch. I removed the push clips at the trigger and hard soldered them too. I am now afraid to attempt to kick it again as my foot has not recovered from the flogging it got this morning. I did check the timing when I first started it this morning and it was off a bit. I reset it at 32 degrees. then tried to start it and go for a test spin around the block. It kicked the crap out of me again. Sometimes it does it sometimes not?? If I do decide to check the timing marks with a degree wheel how do I make sure the motor is at TDC to do any necessary corrections to the existing marks. I am really geting frustrated. My foot is killing me and I may really damage something in my foot if this happens again. How critical is exact timing with a Boyer and could the boyer or triggers be faulty. I pulled the trigger plate off and inspected it well and it looks fine with no frays etc.?? Thanks for any further suggestions--Mark C.
