    In 2001, they don't have a kick start. But you can buy the kit and install one. My 2009 had one installed by PO and came in handy for me once in just shy of 3 months of owning the bike.

    I think they are asking if the kit is discontinued.

    Oh, then in that case, you can order the parts you need separately for an older Tw or XT225 I think are the same. GaryL just listed a kit in the Classifieds section, but may have sold by now. If kit isn't availible, you can still get all the parts I would thing. Where there's a will, there's a way.

    I'm on the list at Bay Area Yamaha out in Oregon. They said they will call me when they get more-and they did expect more coming in. Should be about 4 weeks out now. Call or email Ben and get your name on that list. Not sure of the #, just google "Bay Area Yamaha" and it'll come up.

    Hi Hikerglenn: In the mean time just be sure to keep a good trickle charge on your battery. For such a low compression engine, I would like a kick start(not take your leg off), but if you maintain battery I don't think as a 200+ add on it is necessary. Of course it might depend on how far you were from whatever relief. I might and might not add it at so time, but as light as it is I think I could jump it.
    Just give me a minute while I collect my thoughts. They're around here somewhere. Maybe!

    From what I've seen, the XT kit was discontinued in August. One of the reasons why I couldn't let GaryL's kit get away!

    I ordered 3 kits from webbike in japan back in Sept and they are no longer available from webbike either. I'm glad i got them when i did.

    Looking on rocky mountain ATV the individual parts are still available so a kit could be pieced together in theory. The cost will be much higher, i priced it up at almost $400.

    Pair of 2006 TW's modded to the hilt and a Ducati Multistrada.

    dogonit-ya, nobody NEEDS one, i just want one! I've bump-started it several times in 2nd and 3rd gear and it was easy. But... what if the battery takes a dump and i'm at the bottom of a hill? Besides- they LOOK cool!
