There is a development for a kickstart. The package would contain all needed parts. Some additional simple changes to the housing needed to be made. For those without workshop it may come to 3-5 hours of paid work for a mechanic.

Some additional changes? what, like machining an exit for the Kick shaft cw with seal. I have had the RH cover off a few times but can not remember if the Cover is thick enough in that spot to take the load of the Shaft.

I hope it does not come to welding on the cover. This is still in the future, so far only 3d prints exist.

Actually 300 is a purely made up number, it could be as low as little over 100 if we can use an existing kick lever. 3 sprockets and a bunch of gaskets should be cheap…

Has anyone tried sizing the Bullet Kick start gears, maybe they didnt stray too far from that design :unsure:
Anyhow the Cover will need machining to get the shaft out and a seal recess made.
