One other thing about the differences between CB and CL engines. On the CB (Super Hawk), the kick start was forward swinging because of the positions of the riders pegs, rear swinging wouldn't work. On CLs (Scramblers), that wasn't a problem so standard rear swinging kick starters were used.

So, if that is in fact a CL engine (which I believe it is), the right side case would have to be changed to a CB case with forward kick starter. These were problematic since the casting was weak and would crack (they all did if the kick starter was used extensively).

I would like to see a picture of the right side of this bike just out of curiosity.

The other side with that CW kick…
