    Default 4 speed evo kicker kit?!?!?

    Hey guys I have a 4 speed evo sporty building the bike now got the hardtail all done I have the entire engine ripped down and while I'm at it if like to install a kick starter but I'm having trouble finding a kit? There's 5 speed ones but no 4? Dose anyone know of a kit if so what's the best? Also was wondering if any of the early evo 4 speed sportys came with kickers from the factory I wasn't sure? Thank you!

    That much money could actually do something useful elsewhere on the motorcycle. I grew up kicking and wouldn't retrofit a kicker to an Evo Sporty if the parts were free. It's just more weight and complexity for no benefit.

    While you're at it, pull the solenoid end cover on your starter and replace the contacts, install a pushbutton end cover (about 20 bucks) which should be on every Denso starter (it bypasses the handlebar switch and small relay but they remain working and untouched), and make or buy new, heavier duty battery cables.

    ^^^^^ You got that right....^^^^^ Putting a kicker on a bike because it's cool isn't worth the trouble or the cost...

    Been there when you didn't have a choice between a button or a kicker.... It was kicker only unless you bought a newer bike...

    Fake it ... !!!

    There's a kit available that bolts on a kicker that has a starter switch built in...
    Made in Europe.
