Hello, I am new to this forum and a bit new to Triumph cycles. I may as well cut to the chase. Working on a 1973 Triumph 500 twin. We got her running today, but after about 10 mins of idling the kickstarter stopped working. It no longer engaged anything. Sounded a bit like it was skipping all the teeth. This was very strange since we spent about 10 mins kicking her over and over to get her started (it had been a long while since she ran last).

Not sure which sub forum to search or ask about this problem.

Here's a quick (8 sec) video showing the issue. Can you point me in the right direction?

Thanks for your time!
