Default Re: Your thoughts on a Pull Start?

My 80cc was ordered with one. Rope frayed, the broke after a few pulls. trying to repair and a lost a spring. There are no parts for them that i can find. It worked ok. Rope is not hard to change,and should be before using. The bike needed a larger width petal set up. Some older bikes will need bearings for some set ups. Weld on sproket broke. When rewelded pedals worked fine. Next time will heat and bend as someone suggested. Would like the old type pull starter better, less to go wrong.
