Even if you could integrate a starter/clutch assy (good luck!)
then you would have to fit a WR stator, reg/rect/battery.
Tune it properly, then it'll go 1st kick. I cant see why so many ppl have trouble fixing these things.

Don't mean to sound rude but your money would be better spent with a gym membership
The bit that has me confused with the guys that have trouble starting their 426's is this. If you don't have the strength/co-ordination/whaterver to start the bike, how the hell do yoiu ride it? Starting it is a walk in the park compared to riding it hard.

Also, if you drop the bike halfway up some steep slimy slope, it can be really hard just to kick it half-assed, let alone give it a real kick.

I can EASILY start my bike giving her a half a$$ kick sitting down! Take care of your ride and your ride will take care of you.

one kick, and it's an easy kick - bump starts anywhere -
and a better kind of power IMO.

I'll be picking up a cam soon. Just need to find time to put it in... when I'm not riding that is.
firezwr426 - I have only rode a couple of times in Ut. Had a good time at five mile when the temp got up to 50* F last week. I'm looking for some good trails. I will probably head down to moab this summer and hit up some red rock.

What am I missing?

I have been riding for quite a few years and to me a real dirt bike was started with a kick. Times are changing.
There are really nice machines out there with the magic button that work flawlessly.
My bike must be an easy starter, the only time I have trouble with it is when I dump it with a wo throttle and I try to kick it without the hot start.
My next dirt bike will certainly have the magic button, but for now I barely miss it.
