eliminating the starter

What does it take? I suppose you can just somehow plug the hole after you remove the starter..?

What if I want to modify the crank case and use the K magneto cover, is there any internal work that needs to be done?

you can remove the starter clutch and the start and plug hole.

in order to use the cover from a kicker,you need the kicker stator and crankshaft.

not easy swap.

I'll trade you for the kicker motor I just put in my "E".:D

Thanks Eddie. I think I'll go ahead and machine an aluminum cover to plug the hole.

It's probably a better idea anyway. Especially if I ever decide to sell that bike - it would be good to keep the e-start option.

Did you buy the K bottom end that had been sitting on eBay for a while?

I wonder if there is a soft plug that will fit? Also known as a freeze plug, or core plug. Available at any auto parts store.

expanding freeze plug.works great.

No, I bought a complete motor locally from a guy that parted a whole kicker bike out and robbed the good parts for his SM (cams, wheels, carb, etc.).
