fitting the exhaust after a respray i have fitted the stub first then fitted everything else slack, then ive started from the back
tightening every thing up now the problem is that the kick start wont go back to the rubber stop it hits the expansion part
just before it becomes narrow for the muffler section. Hope someone has any ideas as its doing my head in...

Leave it all as loose fit and try the kickstart see if it returns then set in place and tighten up ?

Thanks toddy for getting back to us but ive tried that its as though the expansion part sits to low but if i pull it up lets say towards
the shark fin so it misses the kick start, then it doesnt line up with the rear muffler section
