In addition to electric starters, kick starters are still pretty common for starting the engine on scooters, mopeds, supermotards / enduros bikes and maxi scooters. The rider kicks the kickstart lever, or rather pedal, with some force to bring the crankshaft to the speed needed to get the engine running. This heavy load naturally takes its toll on the kickstarter and makes it one of the wear parts that have to be replaced more often. ... We carry many robust kickstarters in OEM quality for Piaggio, Peugeot, Minarelli, CPI and many more. The kick starter pedals are also available with great looking anodized finishes and cool designs from companies like Str8 to give your vehicle a little customizing. Drive gears, star washers, safety clips, kickstart shafts and other small parts are of course also available in many versions.
