I am looking for some advice on how to convert my eletric start honda cm400t to a kick start. Its a personal preference however, I am looking to see where to get the parts needed and helpful suggestions to consider with this modification.
Thank you. I checked out that link that you posted but I wasn't able to find very specific information on things to look for or how to do it. I understand that you need split the crank case and get an older 1970's (preferably the 1979 Honda CM400T) crank case with the kick start hole. Is there something that I need to look for when installing the kick start lever? Or if there are any other suggestions or links that I can research to find out more about how to do this. I would appreciate it. Also if anyone knows what to consider when selecting a battery because I know it is important when deciding to do a kick start because there are high performance and conventional batteries.
You need to do so research, of course there are things you "need to look for". It's a complete waste of time in my mind, but if you have this compulsion the link I gave you was from Honda Twins.
Step 1: buy older kickstart 1979 cb/cm400T engine
Step 2: swap into your bike
Step 3: ??????
Step 4: Profit
Seems simple to me.
Or you know, you could just buy an older honda like a cb350 or a cb450 that has both kick and electric start. In which case:
Step 1: sell cm400t
Step 2: buy something else
Step 3: ????
Step 4: profit.
yup still seems simple.
Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.
