You have an excellent chance of destroying your knee and ending your riding trying to kick start these larger motors. Or you will put yourself on a fast track for early knee replacement and early senior citizenship.i have a 96 fxd im wanting to install a kick start on it i was wondering if anybody has done this? if so what kind of complications will i run into?
The point was, as a daily thing, not in the winter or....when I want to. But I get ya, cooking on the fire every now and again is fun. just try it every time you want breakfast. technology advances for a reason.I have a kick start on my shovel & electric. I kick it once in a while, usually use the electric.
I will cook in a cast iron kettle on the fireplace or wood burning stove any day during the winter.
Kick start conversions can still be found. Do a google search for Harley 5 speed kick starts. A couple quality companies still offer them.i have a 96 fxd im wanting to install a kick start on it i was wondering if anybody has done this? if so what kind of complications will i run into?
I think Dave63 posted something to the affect of "no". There are self diagnostics run during the start cycle.Can a bike with fuel injection even be kickstarted?
This.Stroked shovel with kicker, got a button too. Back up. Never tried to kick start a twin cam. Can't be as hard as a stroker.
