Just wondering if anybody could post some picks and how to info for turning my xs650 kick start into a pedal style.
Thanks Chad

Originally, I had a brass one just like pictured above. I cut off the pedal part, then drilled and tapped a hold for a 7/16 (If I remember right) bolt. I put in in a touch loose so it would spin with a bunch of red loc-tite. Never gave me any problems. When I got new exhaust, I cut the XS kicker off at the knuckle, and cut a harley kicker off at the bottom. Welded the two together, and now it clears the exhaust perfectly and I have my choice of harley pedals.

I cut the short arm off of mine and welded on a bicycle crank. I got a cool bmx pedal on it:
