Default Re: Pull Start for 80cc chinese engine

I've had and still have a few pull starts. Yes they do have a few weakness's!
However when I am taking off from a stop light(left turn) with cars behind me if the engine stalls, it is so much easier to give it a quick pull rather than pedaling around the turn to start.

As for clearance, I put the crank arm in a vise and bent an offset(cost ZERO).
