Baja Designs makes an easily obtained kit. Looks clunky to me but I hear it works well [shrug]:

If you've got a high budget and lots of time check out XR-Italia for the sweetest electric start XR650R settup I've seen. Don't know much about it other than it looks nearly factory.

Check this link out: http://www.joeracerproducts.com/
They make the version like in the second photo. They are in San Jose California. It is pricier than the Baja designs version but looks a whole lot nicer and more compact. The Baja Designs design is uuugly.

The Baja Designs design is uuugly.


It is ugly but it works for me. I've been thinking of taking off the sticker on the starter as I think it would look better in silver. Pros: it works, the battery is low on the bike so you don't seem to feel the extra weight, works with Acerbis 6.6 tank, and it works. Cons: more wiring, a little weight, not pretty, costs a lot, and you have to modify the battery box if using an Edlebrock carb.
I have mine set up as a dual-sport so the extra weight is not usually a problem. It does exactly what it was designed to do and that is to help out people that have trouble with kick starting a bike. It allows us to be able to ride this great bike. Perfect? No. Works? Yes. Would I like it to look like the Joe Racer one? Yes. Does it look better after you realize that the Joe Racer one is $400 more? Hell yes!
Also remember you will have to get a new stator or rewind your stock one to keep the battery charged. I did run down the battery pretty quick a couple of times before I went to the Edlebrock carb.

look at the link I posted previously. It is a very similar, almost identical design to the XR italia. Joe Racer is based in California so it might be easier overall than buying and shipping from over seas.
As ugly as the Baja Designs unit is, it may be a better performing unit because of the shear size of the starter. But then again, if the smaller units have some sort of gear setup with a ratio that allows them to spin the motor easily then all bets are off on that idea. It might be time to do a search on this subject to find out the mechanical differences of the starters and not just go by which looks best.

Ciao, here I am.

I have tried to intercede for pgiink with Mr. Dall’Ara about to sale the e-start in USA, but Mr. Dall’Ara has answered me that they don’t send it in no place, to buy it is necessary to send to them the bike which they will arrange to mount it.

They are in Italy………….

Sorry


Rather, you can try to contact SP racing team, also they produce a pretty e-start and I think that they can also sell it in USA

They are Swiss.

I got my Baja E-start kit when they first came out. when they changed to the current design of the whole kit I thought I was going to have a problem with the battery placement and my EB carb but all I did was rotate the carb just a hair to clear the battery by a few millimeters. It has been working perfectly ever since with no modifications to the battery box at all. :applause: I am also still using the orginal YTZ7S battery, invest in a battery tender jr they are worth it. :lol:

JoeRacer doesn't have any & was quite annoyed that I called before 8:00. A real A-Hole. I think BajaDesigns quit making them, soooo I bought an L?
