    What I really like is there no mods done to the oil tank or the primary and ya get to keep the kicker...
    The fender will need to see some work ...
    Does look like a patch panel comes with the kit ..

    Would like to see one of these on a running scoot ... !!

    I like that one as it looks like an over the transmission exhaust pipe would work with it.

    The kicker cover looks to be moved out about an inch or so...
    Shouldn't cause any problems with pipe clearance ..??

    Cannonball StealthStarter SSK-R - Kick Drive Rigid Frame

    The Cannonball Kick Drive electric start kit for rigid frame Big Twins converts your classic kickstart-only motorcycle to electric start. After installation you just push the button or turn the key and your old Flathead, Knucklehead or Panhead will roar to life instantly.

    With the CB Kick Drive electric start kit the transmission receives an intermediate housing between kicker cover and main case, where the starter system attaches. The stock kickstarter can be retained. This intermediate housing will be the only thing visible so the overall appearance of your motorcycle will barely change. The primary drive, primary housing and oil tank stay untouched, only the rear fender and your stock 2-1 exhaust require small modifications. Since the system works with an unchanged primary drive, it also allows installation of custom belt drives, custom primary covers, running open primaries, etc. Installation is fairly easy and straightforward. The kit includes everything needed for the conversion except for the battery, wires and starter button/switch, which must be purchased separately.

    If the bike is still equipped with the early stock 6V charging system you will have to convert this to 12 V, which means a suitable generator, regulator, coil and lamps need to be fitted.

    Denso starter is a wise choice.

    As for hips, better compare two to the starter price since they ain't permanent if ya knock 'em loose.

    About the only thing I see is that if you are running a mousetrap or foot clutch you are going to need to extend the clutch arm by the thickness of the unit. Seems a small price to pay. While not cheap, not out of this world either if it is as simple as it looks.

    Then why does it come with the piece to weld into the rear fender? I think with a belt drive it might work with out fender mods as normally the trans is right up against the seat post, chain drive that needs adjust no so much

    I didn’t get to check out the primary side of this. What’s it take to pull off? Just the oil tank and slap on a later primary?

    You keep your Tin Primary as is ... No mods are needed on that side of the scoot...
    Also the oil tank needs no modifications ...
    That's what makes this kit so slick ....

    The only mod that will be needed is to have room from the starter motor to fender ...
    Depending on what pipes yo're running, perhaps some work to them will also need to be done .. ??

    Your photo is showing a stock ele. starter from the 65-69 era ... Look close you can see the Cast Alum Primary ....
    That set-up uses the tranny case with the ears on it ... Also the trans mainshaft and the motor sprocket shaft is longer....
