I have the Micro-Start XP-10 I believe it's called. Thankfully I've never had to use it but it came in very handy yesterday keeping my phone and Bluetooth speaker playing while I tore down my V2.

"once upon a time there were kickstarts."
Yeah and they had magnetos.

And those in the know found a decent downhill run for a bump start. If you don't have decent voltage, the FI bikes ain't going nowhere.
Go figure some daft bastard would take a brand new bike and prove it's a very capable machine.

Still are - CSC dual sports have both ...nice on an adventure bike ....but of course kicking over a 250 is different thing than a 650.

sure but when bikes had kick starts only it was on 650's and 1200's as well as 250's. starting them was no big deal.
