Somebody weigh in about how well the kicker works. And whether there's a compression release. My aging right leg votes for electric start but it's always good to have a backup.
Foggy, we have some questions for you. What other motorcycle brands are you looking at and why?
Even better. Most of my time was spent with 2-strokes which weren't too bad but I have dueled with a few old cranky big-bore 4-strokes. They did not like waking up in the morning.Coulda been much worse. I hear the all-time champion leg-killer was the old Sportsters with magnetos and something about a Linkert-made carburetor.I just assume the UCE runs at pretty high compression so was expecting something pretty potent. I guess the "cool" thing to do would be to use the electric start in the morning and the kickstarter after it's warmed up to show off.
And those chrome hot dog warmers, well, I can paint them satin black.
