    43lbs - holey crap.!

    What did the starter blockoff kit consist of? A bit hard to see as the pic is tiny.

    Sorry about the pic it was from the ebay page. The kit has the plug for the starter hole and the brackets to hold the cover on. Now I am using the ends of the starter to do this and this kit will save a little more weight.:)

    Got my kit in today weighs 3/4lbs less than what I was using. Cut off the right side muffler mount and a bit more of the rear frame rail the bike is 2lbs lighter today:laugh:

    So kick only? If you're looking to get rid of that starter clutch I might be your guy. At least I think that's my problem...
