i'm looking at buying a bike that has an e start but is unreliable for whatever reason, does this kit just come off without cracking the cases etc?

So, I guess we don't get brand or model number, but I am going to say yes anyway............

If its for a 650R those kits suck, I have seen multiple bikes with them that don't work properly, not sure if you have to split the cases but I would assume so

You have to remove the cover for the stator/flywheel. A good machine shop should be able to press the starter gear off the flywheel so you dont have to buy another flywheel. The BD kits are expensive and you might be able to sell it if you arent going to use it. You will likely need a new cover if the owner did not keep the original. You may need a stock shift lever - the one that goes with the starter might stick out too far once its removed.
