Pull Start Pull start conversion?

  1. Does anyone know where I can buy a pull start conversion
    for these little engines? I saw a picture of one on here once,
    but couldn't really find any other info.

    A pull start would be about ideal, I would think, as sometimes
    it takes a few times up and down the street to get my little
    engine started up and ready to go.

    Why would a pull start be better than a pedal start? I do not get it.
  3. Well, with a pull start you don't have to get the bike up to speed
    before popping the clutch to get it started. Sometimes that's a
    bit inconvenient, especially if you have to do it a couple times
    due to engine starting woes.

    I also have another bike I'd like to motorize, but it's a kind of funky,
    non-traditional bike. It's a single speed semi-recumbent, and it's
    geared such that you have to have some pretty strong legs to get
    it going. A pull start would be perfect for that situation, IMO.

    Also, a pull start would be great for when you're tuning or trouble
    shooting. Again, rather than getting on and pop-starting it, you'd
    just grab the handle and let 'er rip.

    A pull start would also be just the thing for smaller riders, or riders
    who are not entirely comfortable or familiar with the whole "get going
    and then dump the clutch" effect.

    ...So yeah..I can think of a few reasons. Now, to find a pull start kit... :cool:
