I don't know. The e-start stuff is 9 pounds. I'd have to weigh the kick-start stuff. All that stuff is just a lever, the gear, shaft, and spring, and the idler gear. The clutch is a wash.

@PeteK, I was up in the attic of the Shop of Horrors this morning and had a chance to fetch up and weigh the kick start stuff. It came in at 3.45lb.

So net weight savings of 5-1/2 pounds. Let’s see how the kickstart holds up to long term use and whether you have any stubborn starting problems.

I forgot, have you deleted the battery yet?
