hi

i run an r6 race bike and for this season have decided to lighten the engine remove the charging system ie run it total loss (is this just a british term or do you guys call it that too?)

i have removed the generator coil, magnet/flywheel but would like to keep the electric starting mechanism in place.

having taken the magnet/flywheel off it look like i need some kind of a bracket to hold the starting gears in place... anyone know when i can get such a thing from?

is this part of the yamaha race kit?

many thanks for any help.

I'd rather just run 2 miles a day and lose 10 pounds myself. Don't know how long a battery would last with an engine pulling 12000rpm's. I'd think about doing it to a drag bike, that along with removing the radiator, fan and shit like that since you could cool it down and charge the battery after everyrun. But for roadracing, i'd leave electrical charging system.
