, wazz'that :
Yep: a bolt-on electric starter kit, for owners of INDIAN CHIEFs with weak knees,
made by a guy in Germany.
Just happens to fit right on my bike as well, as it shares gear-box and kick-starter set-up
with the CHIEF
If it can start the beastly CHIEF ( 1300 cc / 80 cu. in.) it can certainly start my tiny low-compression 600cc.
The starter motor is the same one that runs some big Sportster HD.
Expensive ? Not really; it was cheaper than the cheapest basic roller-starter
I could find ( !!! )
Another (of many ) "This-is-what-I-should-have-done-from-the-start" moments.
Remove kick-starter and mount the bracket ( yellow circle )
on the kick starter 'rod' attached to the frame ,
then the back-plate , and the cogwheels etc
and cover ( loose test set-up on pic )
and mount starter motor from behind
Now I "just" need to make a few adjustments, move the oil-catch tank and find a new place for the battery
and then hopefully final mounting and test-run today.
Here's the heart of the matter; the sprag clutch ( or "one-way bearing" , one might call it ).
Never seen one of them before
....now back to work. I'm seriously running out of time here.
