Has anyone done this to their 650 ? I think this would be a nice improvement if it isn't too involved.
Thanks for any help you can give !

Just learn how to kick it and not stall it, one kick wonder even when 25 degrees out.

If your bike is uncorked and warm you shouldn't need more than 1 or 2 kicks (max) to start. Even if you dumped it...
Mine usually stays running if I grab the clutch quick enough....

Starts fairly easy in the cold also... 3 twists, just past TDC, kick... (repeat as necessary)

E-start is nice but isn't necessity with the pig. You add too much weight and uncertainty to a bulletproof bike. Not to mention $$$...
