2 stroke electric start conversion?

Recommended Posts

This winter in going to buy a go kart frame and drop a 125 or 250 2 stroke in it. I already have a plan for all the cables, linkage etc, but have one problem.

Can I somehow make an electric starter for a kick start motor? I don't want to have to climb out of the thing to start it if I stall. I'm starting to understand most of the internals of 2 strokes now so I'm curious if it's possible.

There are aftermarket electric starters out there.  I am not sure of their names, Google it, should be able to come up with something.

The kickstarter assembly can't be used for an electric starter without fabricating different gears to change the reduction ratio.

 

Most electric starters for 125/250cc Japanese motocross-engined shifter karts are hand-held. The only bolt-on one that I know of is for a CR125 engine.
