I called BBR over the summer to get a shorty kicker for my 01 250F and they said that they were no longer producing them. They may have started up again, but when I called, it was a clearance special.

Here is a pic of my 2004 450 with the pro tec lever . it makes kicking it over a lot better. shorter lever = more torque.

I need one. When I kick my bike over the starter keeps getting stuck on the gigantic fastway pegs.

Wouldn't a shorter lever = less torque?

Thats what I was just thinking :thumbsup:

So like, if you cut the lever down to 1 or 2 inches you can kick it over with your pinky finger? :thumbsup:
