Starter Motor

I pulled the starter motor. I used a soft drink bottle lid to seal the hole, with a bit of gasket sealent.I know it's a cheap, and nasty fix, but it's oil tight.

Pete-

You should pull the side case off and figure out a way to engage the starter gear train so that you've got a crank shaft driven PTO.

You could then run a decent blender (as the PTO would spin at about a bazillion rpm) for making Margaritas at the trail side...

Now that would be the best farkle of the year!

My neighborhood has no shortage of colorful characters. Here's one of our mad scientist's modification to his 500 Ninja Frankenbike.
