Looking for a tool/device
« on: August 17, 2021, 10:00:04 am »
Most carb bikes are getting long in the tooth. I have to repair about 4-5 carbs per month. Once the basics are done, I may required a couple dozen attempts to get it to a point where it will fire the first time. Also depends on the amount if fiddling the owner has done. Problem is kick start only bikes needs be kicked a moerova lot of times. In order to access the bottom of the carb - FCR bikes have a fuel screw below the carb - I kick the bikes on the work bench. Iím sortoff old, and this messes up my knee and ankle.

So, I looking for a device that will fit over the kickstart knuckle, I press a button and electricity turns the starter without hitting the start lever into the foot peg.

Iíve googled, but canít see to search the correct terms. Has anybody come across something like that? I think a car starter that turns anti-clockwise with a limiting switch may work, but Iím not keen to develop this myself

Ek dink vir sulke dae ry dorp toe en tel een van die casuals op met die langste friste bene  :deal: :thumleft:
Sal interessant wees of daar so iets is.

Lyk my ander manne krap ook kop oor dieselfde vraag.

Bill n lang pyp met splines and extention aan die onderkant kan dit nie werk nie? Dan gebruik jy jou arms? Ek moes maar leer om my arms vir omtrent als te gebruik. Die Honda 125 Ace wat ek nou verkoop het start ek met die hand maar dis net n 125.

Moet seker lekker wees om so slim te wees.
Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to rank amongst those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.

Chris, goed soos ou WR en YZF 250 kan ek met die hand start. Ouer CRF250ís het baie tos decompression stelsels, en nog swakker ignitions. Hom moet jy vinnig en tot heel onder crank om te start. Op n lang lever gaan ek amper supersonies moet gaan🤣

wheel type starter will be the best option, at the races recently i saw them fitted to the trolleys that deliver coke crates/gas bottles, so the guns can get there wives to wheel it around ! privateers struggle !
knobblies no problem, the hill climbing vids on youtube show them starting with these.

No problem with knobblies at all , a larger diameter roller will prevent that  :thumleft:

I see some very simple paddock starters, looks certainly simple enough to DIY

One actually uses an angle grinder :thumleft:

Kyk vir twee ou conveyor rollers van n myn of by n kelder wat hulle vervang het. Behoort mos lekker grip te hÍ die rubber op rubber.

problem is probably the counter clockwise, but not all is counter clockwise...so for the others...


a battery powered drill? (jy ken vir Philip, hy draai die rook uit sy dogter se PW50 met so boor, werk mooi)

Ek gaan n angle grinder gebruik, dan het ek nie n clutch nodig nie. Sit net die switch af.  Kort net 2 rollers.  En ek mount hom net aan die kant wat my pas, dan maak dit nie saak watter kant toe hy draai nie...

You should ban all carburetors from your premises Bill, it will be better for your health


probably your mental health and marriage as well!
