    Kickstarter conversion

    I mostly ride in the forest alone. My wife convinced me to get a PLIB for her peace of mind and my safety. I did.

    Now, for my peace of mind, I want to add a kickstarter to my otherwise perfect bike.

    After reading multiple threads about sources for the parts/kits, I canít find any source that has all needed parts in stock, ready to ship except TW-Parts.com in Germany.

    The price including shipping seems reasonable.

    Can anyone who has experience with this company vouch for them?

    Thanks...

    He's a trustworthy member here on the forum. His name is Sebastian. He knows his TW's. He will have what you need.

    I remember reading recently of a member who complimented Sebastian on his kickstarter delivery, but I don't remember who that was...

    Sebastian's rock solid dependable though.

    I just recently ordered everything needed for the install from boats.net. I know there are other places, but they worked out fine. I have gotten all my carb parts and other assorted items from them as well with no regrets. TWBrian helped with info. I have attached several links to the forum that Iíve saved regarding Kickstarter parts and installation. Boats.net shipped everything fairly quickly, even the items that were temporarily out of stock. Cost was around $250.00. The whole process was very very simple and easily done. Iíd say the most difficult part was cleaning off the old gasket material. To hold the clutch assembly I used a hole saw and cut a hole in a scrap of aluminum plate I had laying around and drilled four holes to line up with the clutch. When bolted to the clutch it provided a safe way to hold it for removal and to torque it down while reassembling. Very easy.
    I hope this helps. Iím happy I installed it.

    Although not in my immediate plans I may do this addition at some point down the road.

    I received all the parts ordered to install my kickstart yesterday.

    Iíve read every thread and think I understand the process but since I ordered the parts individually and not a kit, the subassembly did not come preassembled, I would really like to see the instructuons that come with a kit.

    Does anyone have these instructuons, perhaps in a pdf, that could be sent to me?

    Thanks in advance for all of the help you guys are so willing to provide...

    I found some information in another thread that helped me understand the sequence for building the subassembly.

    The large washer shown in the first image is clearly concave yet the washer I received is flat as shown in the second image.

    Could someone confirm for me that the flat washer is ok?

    Yes, that flat washer is okay.

    That top picture is of a well used kicker. That concave washer started out as a flat washer.
