Super trick/exotic and very remote starter button!

Folks, what you see here is a highly trick/exotic and very remote starter button.
.
Directions: First, start off by disabling your starting circuit in your ecu by reversing all of your connections to the battery. Be sure to turn the ignition on for at least 10 seconds so you can make sure that part of the ecu is totally disabled and will never work again. Next, go down to the local Napa and pick up a solenoid push button starter and two ft long cables with connectors that will fit on the solenoid terminals. Once home, connect the cables at one end to the postive and negative terminals on your solenoid, then connect the other ends to the push button. Use zip ties to mount in the desired location and...walla! Be prepared to make your fellow riders green with envy.

What better way to increase the value of your St while showing the world you're super sharp and with the program!

It sounds like a good theft prevention device as well.

Who needs a fully functioning ecu or immobilizer system when you got this?!

You know...the starter on these bikes eventually slows down too. Plenty of time to figure out how to retrofit a kick starter!

Yeah, or maybe I'll find a way to fry that as well ? A kick starter would not only make it more unique, but would also be a good way to limit my use of the bike too!

Innovative!


Kick start... I started to look at old Triumphs on eBay after watching American Picker the other night. They had dug a '67 Bonneville out of pick that looked like it was ready to ride. They got it for what I figured was a steel, and according to what I saw on eBay, it was! It occurred to me that I probably don't have the knees anymore for a kick start twin, so I'm safe for now!

Even if you had the leg to work against all that compression on the Duc, the first time it kicked back it would probably send you into orbit!
