The leather Bonneville seat is from Journey Project, which I think is based in Thailand.  Took about 6 weeks to get it.  Fits great and is comfortable.  Comes with leather dressing. See https://www.facebook.com/pg/OmegaRacer/photos/?tab=album&album_id=772327669553501


The BMW seat is the one that comes on their RNineT Scrambler.

I need to bump the idle up quite a bit, but she fricken rips. The new carbs are epic.

Finally pulled this out in the daylight.

I don't suppose someone has any tricks on fixing that kick starter shaft without having to yank the motor again and doing a split?

Sweet little scoot! Since the shaft is junk anyways, you could maybe drill it for a bolt? It would weaken that area with the splines but that thing probably takes no force to kick it over so it may last you a while until you have to fix it the "right" way.

The gear on these is on the outside of the case.  I'm pretty sure you don't have to split the case to change the shaft.  Don't try to cobble together a fix.  The shaft is not hard to find- even $25 on Ebay.  You need the splines to handle the torque.  I've seen people weld the lever on, tho.  With XL175's guys weld a Kawasaki end onto the shaft, since the shafts have become unobtanium.

I've had the cover off, the gear is inside the casing.

Too bad I can't just come from under, have to pull the head, jug and all to split it......was just trying to see if there were other ways.

Oh well, looks like an engine pull.

Thanks for the response fellows.
