The Mk3 kickstart arm sticks out farther from the bike, providing more clearance between the kickstart and the muffler. In this picture the MK3 arm is on the right. The other advantage of the Mk3 kickstart arm over the pre-MK3 arm is the MK3 arm has a spring loaded detent to hold the pedal in the shut or open positions.
