So test riding my s2 on friday in anticipation of going to scarborough on saturday.
Found it would not start with the carb connected to the airbox.
Rapido 200, 42mm clubman,26mm jettex set up by rayspeed.
Rode up to Rayspeeds.
Having connected the carb to the airfilter. Trying to make sure it was running rich and not lean.
Eventually made it.
Had Ben and Ray both working on it.
Ray kicked it off 1st time after adjusting it.
Got to Scarborough parked up and went for a walk.
Came back. Tried to start it....
Kicking it over then...cue hamlet music...Image

No.
It is the kickstart shaft that has sheared.
