Were the cases split? Just making sure the shaft is in the cases correctly.
 If not, your on the right thinking to wind it around counterclockwise to fit in the hole.

Chuck- yes, cases were split and I called myself positioning the kick start shaft as service manual indicated. When shaft is clocked all the way clockwise, I can hear the ratchet move into rest position. YRs will only kick start when in neutral too.

All the springs I have done always pre wind but that doesn't mean anything.  Just try it carefully and see what happens.

Couple of pics....
This is an external kicker return spring. That red piece is part of a spray nozzle used to show the hole on shaft for the spring tang. Kick shaft is turned all the way returned in clockwise position in the at rest position. I'm guessing the return spring will need to wind counterclockwise one full revolution with vice grips before being positioned on the shaft. Is that right?

Dammit!  It figures that right after I give up on the DS7 top end and sold it all for cheap, that pistons are now available. Dammit!

Sorry Gold Wing fans, they just ain't for me

The early 4-cylinder ones are really a different motorcycle from the new ones.  I wouldn't kick one of those out of the garage, although I'm not looking for one.  :)
