    Default Electric start panhead

    Has anyone done this before? I donít have the transmission yet so Iím wondering what I would use I know it has to be a short shaft. The Panhead is a 51, Iím just kind of stuck on this I need to make it to an electric start because I canít kick over anymore due to a injury from being hit by a car a year ago. Iíve seen the tech cycle electric start kits for PanheadĎs but I donít know what transmission I would need. Would a ratchet top work with a starter on it? Thanks ahead of time

    Don't get me wrong .... Tech makes some very good products...
    And I have used there starter kits for both years of the four speed tranny cases....
    With both kits that they make the primary covers will need cutting up for the needed room of the clutch drum starter ring gear...



    With the RSES, no mods goes down on the left side of the tranny, none ...

    Berzerk, Here is the Tech Cycle on my panhead. I used a later model long shaft ratchet top but i think they have a model that will work on an early short shaft ratchet top. I believe it mounts to the trans mount plate and is much lower than mine. You also keep your kicker if you ever need it.

    Oh that’s perfect! So what trans are you using? I don’t have the trans yet, was going to get a long shaft pan trans...but it is also a ratchet top and I didn’t know if that would work but it looks like the starter isn’t in the way at all right?

    Yes, long shaft ratchet top. You will need to space out your motor pulley to match. Tech cycle can help with the proper spacing. This is what i used http://techcycle.com/4-speed-isolator/ that works with a later model ratchet top. It mounts to the trans in place of the inner primary.

    Here's a pic from the other side. You can clock the starter in different positions. I trimmed a bit on the lower ear of the trans to rotate the starter tight to the trans.

    Ya, 50 years in the roofing business has not been friendly to my knees or back so electric was the only way to go. I can still kick it if i have to.

    I will say my back is still in damn good shape for my age, But it helps a lot when your bike kicks over first time every time.... Fuck kicking a bike 25 times to crank it....LOL

    That's for young people...

    I know what your talking about, But I figured what works about 10 years ago... My Knuck and my Pan both crank first kick hot or cold everytime..... Well after the prime kick that is when it's cold... It sure is damn nice...

    Your a lucky guy, and probably a better tuner than me.
