Default Kick starter gear with zip ties

Any one run into zip ties around the kick starter gear on a 2007 GASGAS 300 EC.

Seems like it's meant to preload the spring. I think the teeth were not engaging correctly and threw over so that's why.

I think it is intended to be decorative.

The teeth round over time due to constant kicking instead of getting the bike to top dead center and hitting it. A new pinion and spring solves this. You've found a bodge and a half!

Excellent thanks must work I have never had any trouble with the kick starter.
