kick start to duel start??

Sorry if this has been asked before, i cannot find any thing about this.
I have a 2003 550 and would very much like to fit electric start.
I need to know is it true a honda cbr600 starter will fit and if so which year and exact model it would come from, also can any one tell me what other parts inside the motor i would need.
SORRY TO ASK BUT THE PC I AM HAVING TO USE HAS SUCH A SMALL MEMORY THAT I CANNOT DOWNLOAD ACROBAT READER OR LOOK AT THE WORKSHOP BOOKS ONLINE
As for mounting brackets ,switches, solenoid ,and battery carrier these can all be made or found local, many thanks

Hey Cookeye,
Suggest you consult your local Husaberg dealer for a parts list. Then the Honda shop to compare starters.

Good luck,

Mackberg

Cookeye,

The whole e-start kit is available to buy, if you choose - somewhere around the £220 mark.

Cheers,
Simon

Try getting in touch with Scully in Tasmania. He fitted a CBR600 starter to his bike. I think last he said about it was that it fitted OK but was a bit low on torque. I'm not sure if he later found a reason why his bike was taking more torque than normal to turn it over.

PS. You obviously have too much power in your bike & not enough in your PC!

This may sound stupid, but can I convert my FC400 to e-start for around $350 (or whatever 220 pounds equals)? I would love to add electric start, I'll call the dealer in the morning if that's the case.

Well, I called KTM Northwest and they said they didn't think there was a kit for the older bikes. They also said that all the parts to do it would run about $800, ouch. They did say there is a kit for KTM's that might work, I am supposed to call them back tomorrow for facts and figures.

If there's a kit in the UK for only $440 US, someone ship one to me, ok

The left side engine case half would need to be replaced with an e-start type along with quite a few parts . Unless you are planning to rebuild the engine anyway I think it would prove to be monumental task.



Here's a pic from this thread Relevant thread showing the e-start case half.

Well, I'm not looking to replace the case half in order to gain a "happy button". THat's why I asked in the first place. Reading some other posts lead me to think it was a matter of buying a starter, battery, and a button. As much as I hate to kick the crap out of my bike, when properly tuned, it starts very easy with the kicker and I'll leave it at that.

Thanks husabutt for helping me see the light
