Kickstarter levers always come lose and often fall off, especially on two strokes, so here's a quick tip to avoid it becoming lose
Kickstarter levers always come lose and often fall off, especially on two strokes and especially, especially small-bore two strokes like 65s or 85s because of the engine vibration. I have lost count of how many kickstarters I have found around the track over the years. When the kickstarter comes lose it can often hit the frame or cases and cause further damage.
Use a threadlock compound like Loctite on the kickstarter bolt and check it regularly.
