CL350 help

well being new to the cafe world, I would like some advice. I am having issues with my newly purchased cl. the last time it was ridden was sept. of 05, and I just got it to run just recently. my leg is still tired from kicking it to go. this may seem like a dum question but did the 72 cl's have electric start? am i just blind and didn't see the starter? the button on the throttle is worn out so there is no labels on it. My battery was near dead, and would not charge very well. I am going to replace it. but when I hit the button all it did was click. so I am sure that my battery was too weak to turn the starter. I don't think the starter is dead if that is what it is. also the 72 CL has a 6 volt system right? where can I get a replacement headlight, or upgrade it to something brighter. I am not sure on where to start, I have so much to do and not alot of time.

just ride it.

the starter hangs off the front of the engine case below the jugs. its about the size of a soda bottle. it is possible that someone took it out and installed a block off plug there. it inserts into the left side case as you sit on the bike down in front.

if you have an sl motor, there is no starter.

they are specific im pretty sure to motorcycles. oud have to check on that. the local bike shop should have what you need for only a few bucks.
