That would be sweet.  It's a huge time saver, especially for when you go down and have a hard time starting the bike until you find neutral.

 

Interesting linkage, can't tell exactly what they're doing there, but looks different and like there's another moving part. Could be wrong on that...

 

Looks like a video presentation here:  http://www.motoxaddicts.com/2015/02/13/video-presentation-of-electric-start-2015-yamaha-yz450fm/

I was looking at the weld running down the length of the arm on the top edge.  Looks fabbed up from flat stock, or reinforced, or ?

 

Something is up with the connecting link too, no?

Trey Canard was running a linkage arm similar to that earlier this year. I believe it aids in starting.

Its a rear hole shot device.. Seen them on some of the Japan National bikes. Bikes with front a rear holeshot devices sit so low when they are locked in..

Anyone know how the rear holeshot link works?  I tried to read up about it, but there isn't much written about how it actually holds the rear of the bike down on the starting line.  The fronts are easy to understand but the back is different.   Also, looks like anyone can buy them and it's really not a "works" part, just has a "works" pricetag at $400!!

Potential carbon fibre sub frame? Or just a nice cover...

 

definitely full composite...aren't the husky guys running one too or is theirs plastic?
