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.
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.
That poll runs since 2 month now and all of 5 people have voted :poop:
Well, that should be telling us something :cool:
yes, that and the fact that US$ 300 likely is way too low a price if the side panel has to be part of the package. That alone costs more than US$ 200 in the west.
So what is the cost likely to be?
