    Hey All -

    I have done some searching - but can't seem to find if there is anyone who has found a way to keep a kickstart on a bike with larger pipes.

    My 85 WideGlide used to have a kickstart - but now uses just electric start. I prefer kickstarts (always have) - and have been wondering if there is any solution for this....

    I have a pic - but apparently I don't have enough posts to add it to this... ;-)

    You will soon be able to add pictures Daniel.
    Welcome to the forum.
    As for the kickstart... I don't know a lot about them. (the wife tells me I need one ...now what does she mean?)

    What type of pipes have you added?

    Maybe a modification th the kicker arm to clear the pipes if you keep the pipes on?

    Now that you ask me that.... I am not sure! I thought they were Jesse James pipes...

    I added the pipes to the bike almost 4 years ago. I settled for losing my kickstart... at the time. Now I wish I had it back...

    I thought about this one... I just imagine there is a way to get the arm to come out further when you pull it forward...

    I think I am at 5 posts.. now!

    I see your problem now because of the shape and not so much the size.

    That's going to be a tough one for sure.

    Yeah. I would like it to sit under the pipe normally - and then when in use - pull out beyond the pipe....

    Just not sure it is possible... - or more accurately - not sure if it is pre-made (I am sure it is possible....)
