Don't know the price difference but i think the "genuine" SIL indian GP shafts are very good.
You may need to shim the shaft on the kickstart side with 1mm or 1.5mm shims (not the nasty indian ones) to help keep the shaft away from the clutch and stop it moving in and out but strength wise for a tuned machine they are good in my opinion.

I think the Indian ones are very sturdy. Not the best looking kickstarts. But they do the job. Not had a good look at the Casa ones. But they are more like an original.

Same idea (possibly better ?), as the MB circlips with 'tabs' on to spead the load and stop the washer sinking inwards.

Thanks for the replies, a genuine SIL shaft and a cir-clip with lugs on it is 8-)
