Default Kick Start

Hey all,

Ive heard little bits about kick starts for these engines. Ive got an 80cc motor I bought from BoyGoFast on Ebay and I was hoping somebody might know where I can get a kick starter that would be compatable.

Thanks for any input yall might be able to offer!

They make a pullstarter that you can buy for these engines,but if you want a kickstart you will have to mod and make one your self.

I've heard taco saying he kicks his and AZbill too.

They mean Pick up the back of the bike and kick start it with the Peddle.
Got to try it myself.
Soo much snow and ice i had a bad time starting mine today.

Mines too heavy to pick up, i just use my pullstart,you can get one for $20 at zoombicycles,but you have to have a wide peddal kit or short peddal crank arms.

I used to kick mine just as rich described...now I pull the rope (4stoke )
it is easier when the engine is warmed up

i used to kickstart it in the summer when it would fire up on the first or second kick, now its really cold and i gotta bump start everytime. i wish there was a proper kickstart kit like the pullstart, its really tiring to use the pedals to kickstart,

I tried and i can't get the slant to budge even slightly.
But i only weigh about 160 lbs.
I'll have to see if there is a way i could engineer a real kick start.
That would be sweet.

Don't know if i would be able to use a pull start.
This puppy has some compression.

Default Re: Kick Start

must be a combination of higher compression and cold engine
I am only 145lbs and 6'1", so it wasn't my weightlifter physique

Stupid of me not to realize the pedals are kickstarters when the reartire is lifted...

This brings to mind the flipdown kickstands (that are more like retractable bike stands) that some lowriders use. Im sure these are too flimsy to supports someone trying to start by pedal, but a determined fabricator with a welder and some scrap stock.... hmmm.

I think im going to try a pullstart for now. I tried zoombicycles.com and gasbikeshop.com and both were out of stock. Anyone have any other recommendations on where to look?
