It will allow the KS shaft to hit the bolt.
This will ruin one or both of the parts.
The lever in pic 2 is correct as it will go to straight down and not hit the bolt. ......................lm

At the Pawl End of the Kick Shaft is where the Bolt will Stop the Shaft if the Kick Lever isn't installed properly.
With the CB72/77 being Forward Kick you Must time the gears properly and the Shaft End will not hit the Bolt.
For the C/CA72/77 and CL72/77 the Kick lever MUST be at 11:00 angle and it will Arc to Straight Down and hit the Foot peg to Stop.
There are those who thinking they will get MORE SWING of the lever by placing the Lever at
1:00 or 2:00 will in fact Make the Shaft Hit the Bolt and Crack the Kick Starter Joint or worst yet Break the Splines off the Shaft.
Imagine the POWER you are applying to those parts if you stop the shaft before you are at the bottom of the arc. ........................lm

Quick question(s) - is there anything preventative that can be done to the knuckles to stop them from cracking, or is it something you just sorta pray doesn't happen? I've had a look at one of mine and it's fine; I'll need to pull the other one apart to check that later. And when do you tend to notice the cracks appear - is it something you find when you start rebuilds or d'you inspect for this sort of thing regularly?
I'm having to repair one or two of the results of some of the other interesting design choices Honda worked through with the 250/305's in the '60's. The rear brake switch mount on the CL77 is a particular favourite . . .
Just to be clear Ed...
