For the Four-Speed Big Twin Gearbox in Rigid or Swingarm Frames
A machinist by trade, I built the first RIGHT SIDE ELECTRIC STARTER several years ago to help a friend. The machined aluminum gear housing replaces the kicker cover on jockey
or ratchet top four speeds built until 1979.
Utilizing a late style xl starter motor and via gear and chain reduction, torque is applied to a stem gear meshed with the oem 16 tooth kick starter gear. The starter motor 9 tooth gear is always engaged for quiet operation and longevity. The RSES drive train is disengaged at the oem starter clutch via proprietary parts. A PATENT IS PENDING.
An electric start oil tank and 12-volt battery are required. NOTE-- One may retain the 6 volt electrical system if willing to relocate the H2 battery to a saddlebag or sidecar. Of course, one must install a maintenence-free softail-sized battery in the oil tank to start the bike. The starting battery charge is maintained daily via an external battery charger. The panhead illustrated to the right starts on 12 volts and runs on 6 volts!
The $1095 price includes the starter motor. Our oil tank kits sell for $295, and are available with oem style flare fittings.
I would be honored for you to put this on your home page. I also have thought about contacting Easyrider about a follow up article. I would be happy for you to put a testimonial about my satisfaction about your product. I am 100% satisfied with the quality, operation of your starter. This is no mickey mouse product. Your instructions are very complete and thorough. I have been riding bike regularly for a month and get nothing but praises for the looks of starter and everyone wants for me to demonstrate how it works. Riding this bike again is one of my dreams and thanks to you, it has happened.
