Electric start vs kickstart

Recommended Posts

Kick start 2 stroke.  I line up next to electric start 4 strokes on purpose if I spot them.  I used to get terrible starts until people started showing up with electric start and 4 strokes.  Kick start 2 stroke all the way.  I have my clutch in the friction zone by the time my kick start lever even hits the foot peg.

An electric start is gonna win every time. You can have it started before you even have your leg over it. Even more so if you're vertically challenged.

If you aren't on the bike to begin with, yeah electric start is faster.  In my district, we start on the bike.  My foot is on the lever and I get half a bike length on the 2T e start bikes, and a full bike length on any 4 stroke no matter what.  Rekluse made E start obsolete in my opinion.  I'm not sure how many do-dads we can pack onto these bikes before it makes it impossible for youngsters to get a decent used bike.
