any chance of retrofitting '03 e-start to '99?

5 posts in this topic

I'm sure this has probably been asked, but I've been computer-less for a while and my search parameters have yielded 0 results.

My '99 is more than enough bike for me, but I dream of e-start...is a retrofit a possibility worth holding out for? :)

I doubt it. The engine is mostly all new. There must have been a huge market for an electric starter kit for '98 and newer YZF's and WRF's but I've never seen one which leads me to believe it isn't possible or that it would cost so much that you'd be better off buying a KTMexc.

The only option is the FRENCH electric start for the WR. It's too bulky for my taste.

i read the french starter added 18 pounds to the bike, and i agree with you kaze, it looks too bulky
