While testing the new 2018- 85’s we have seen a possible issue with the Kick Start idler gear bushing boss breaking off when kick starting the bike. Nihilo has designed a new device that holds the gear in place while at the same time tightly reinforcing the boss in the center case so it can not break off. It’s easy to install and only requires removal of the outside clutch cover and clutch assembly. Once you have the clutch out of the bike you simply replace the thin metal star shaped idler gear retainer with the Nihilo part and reassemble. This small part can save you from destroying your center cases and losing the race. This part is a must have for your 2018 KTM or Husky get one today!
