KLR 250 Electric Start?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a line on an electric start kit for a KLR250? I bought my wife an '05 so we can ride together, but she has a little trouble kicking it over. My understanding is the basic bike hasn't changed a whole lot over the past few years. Also; any chance a Mojave 250 electric starter would work? Any thoughts?

Did you ever get an answer back on this question?

I just bought a 2004 KLR250 and it only has a kickstart. My wife is having a problem starting it. She would love an electric start, but so far the Kawasaki dealers have said that they do not have a electric starter kit available to add on to the bike.

Please let me know what you have found out on this. Thanks.

I looked at the parts break down for your KLR250. It shows that it has an Automatic Compression Release (ACR). I have repostioned almost 60 of them on KLX300's to make it easier to kick the bike over. This might be an option if you can't find the electric start.

Ride on

Welcome to the site,

The Kawasaki Mojave is not electric start either. Once the bike is broken in it will kick a little easier. :naughty:

She'll get used to it, its an easy kicker. I learned on that bike and now I love the fact that it kicks (except when I restart it after its been stored over the winter).

And the mojave IS NOT elec. start.

My wife's o4 KLR250 was a PITA to light up at times -- much better now with a tweak of the pilot screw. :naughty:

My 2001 KLR 250 is much better now that I re-did the carb. It sat 3 years and was brutal to start. (Had to switch legs after tiring out mr right leg). Now in the mornings when it is 35 deg it is about 4 kicks. Usually it is just one. The pilot screw is the ticket for making it work better.
