1 Need electric start 525 ktm on Sun Mar 31, 2013 8:48 pm

I know I probably sound like a wussy, but kick starting my bike sucks.

Im not sure if I have a bent kick lever or I just suck kick starting it. Sometimes starting my bike is easy and sometimes its just nearly impossible and I have to push it back. Im a tall guy and this bike is seems so tall that if im not on level ground I cant get it done. Maybe there is some aftermarket replacement lever that will work better, I dunno and havent found one. I would like to install a starter but really have no idea where to start, other than just taking it to a shop and having it done. Freedom gave me a quote of nearly $800 and that seems a bit steep to spend on a 2003 thats not mint. If you have any suggestions its a 2003 KTM 525 sx. Any help would be appriciated.

I installed one on mine and its a life saver.I'm a short fat guy so it was a no brainer for me.But that was back in 2004.About $600 back then.But stalling in corners,whoops,off balance situations just hit the switch.Ahhh life is good.Depends how long your gonna keep bike if the add on is worth it.[img][/img]

Sure do wish they would have made one for my RMZ450R as it was a booger bear to start at times too.
