Has anyone installed a pull start yet? I am considering one for my next build because it will be for me. here is live fast motors parts page with the pull start listed for $25

Any input is welcomed.
I got one from Live Fast, works OK - doesn't want to rewind all the way some times but it's no biggie. For 25 bucks it's worth it. Got a different style on order from zoombicycles.com, supposed to be better, I guess we'll soon see. Walter F.

I bought one. Then saw the pedals wouldn't clear so I haven't used it yet.
Thought it might work better with the shift kit, but it isn't hard to 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.
