Didn't know these had a kicker. Weird system, cool though...

Yeah, its super quirky, not something to re-start the bike at the traffic lights if it stalls....

Feels alot more disconnected from the engine than other kickstarters too, and its like it only rotate the engine 1/4 of a turn. But it works...

 

Edit: For those of you that don't know, the kickstarter is stored in the fuel tank....

Awesome. I've always pined for one of these. I'd imagine the kick start would be as finicky as my 850. 

Like like like the plans for it. That windjammer might be worth something. I've seen so many of those things one stateside 750-850s like mine
