Hi, I'd like some opinions on Kick-Only. Bike will probably be ridden 5 times a month, go to some shows, etc. My other bike (SV1000n) is my main get-somewhere motorcycle. Bike will have a PMA, Pamco. Needs to have the starter fix applied to it, if I keep the electric starter. I still have the OEM battery box and mounts. I can either retain the electric starter : Apply the MikesXS fix package. Retain battery box Get an AGM battery Retain solenoid and the starter safety (37 years old) Retain hand control with start button Delete kick starter lever and apply a block of in the RH case Some extra wiring Pros : Electric leg. No kickstarter lever. No future ankle problems. Exhaust possibilities are unencumbered by having to make plans for the kicker. Rear sets would be easy in the future. Cons : Money, weight, now I can see the battery box through my newly hewn sidecovers. Still have a dorky throttle/hand control. I can go Kick-Only: Apply parts I already have Buy a dual cable throttle Pros : Light weight, everything is mostly already bought. Fits the vibe of a resto-mod. Fewer parts = good mantra. Cons : Kick lever looks weird on the RH side of the bike. Hilarious ankle pain in the future. Potential for looking like a complete idiot in a group of people. Makes sorting out rear sets a pain in the future. Makes sorting out exhaust a pain in the future. For those of you who have Brats/Bobbers/Choppers that are Kick Only...do you regret it? How often do you wish for an electric starter? I'm on the fence, but I don't have to choose a side just yet. Thanks. Picture.
