Default Electric Start

Anyone had any experience with this electric start engine from Monster Scooter:

http://http://www.monsterscooterpart...ncowielst.html

Doesn't say anything about horse power rating but would be kind of cool for Stanon or GEBE owners to be able to start and stop their engines from a switch on the handlebars. A small 5 AH SLA like I have for the electric start on my "Walk Behind" lawn mower would probably work. Only weighs a couple of pounds and I only charge it once a season.

engine will perform very well and is 4 HP and will top off at 40 MPH with a 1.25 inch drive roller and you will have to order a gas tank for it since it dont come with one

Not real electric start, it's a pull start,just like a lawnmower.
I have a pull start like that on my china 2-stroke engine.

The Grubee e-start is pretty cool. It will require a really wide pedal crankset.

They work quite well. I've had several scooter choppers with that style engine. The bigest issue I found was the low quality batteries available in the small size needed to fit those choppers. If you get an year from one, you're doing good.
The starter is built into the recoil assembly and also functions as a generator on some, depending which exact engine you get.
