Hi there everyone my restoration project has been progressing well until Friday when I started up my Honda XL175 and was in the middle of fine tuning the idle speed when she stopped and when I kicked her over again I broke the kick start spindle. I would appreciate some help in how to remove and some real help in trying to locate either a new one or a very good used one. Thanks in advance.

David. The XL 175 kick start spindle is truly a horrible thing. If you can find a replacement (big if), you will need to dismantle the crankcases to remove the old spindle. Its not that hard to do if you follow a shop manual.

Finding a replacement will be difficult. Unlikely that you will find any NOS and any old ones will not last either. However, refer this post here and you will see what I did to solve this problem -

Good luck in your mission. RR
