Electric start kit »Stealth Kick Drive« by Cannonball

Item №
13-880

The Cannonball StealthStarter system converts your classic kickstart-only motorcycle to electric start. After installation you just push the button or turn the key to fire up your classic Big Twin.

The Cannonball SSK electric start system bolts between kicker cover and transmission case. The stock kick starter can be retained. This intermediate housing, measuring just 19 mm, will be the only thing visible. Due to the system’s low width the overall appearance of your motorcycle will remain virtually unchanged. Primary drive, primary housing and oil tank will stay untouched.

Installation is fairly easy and straightforward. The kit includes everything needed for the conversion except for the battery, wires and starter button/switch which must be purchased separately. Depending on the configuration some other options are available separately.

Since the kicker cover and with it the clutch release lever move 19 mm to the right the following modifications may be necessary:

A longer clutch release lever may be necessary on some configurations. A longer lever is available separately.

A longer clutch pushrod will be necessary. Depending on the pushrod/throwout bearing used on your bike a special extended throwout bearing is available separately to fit your pushrod.

The stock 2-1 exhaust system will have to be routed slightly outward to compensate for the 19 mm offset of the kicker cover.

If the bike is still equipped with an early stock 6 V electrical system, you will have to convert this to 12 V.

In case your bike uses the older 47698-65 transmission mounting plate with the extension for the primary adjuster screw, the extension needs to be removed or our Cannonball SSK-S transmission mounting plate needs to be used.

Just like on a kickstart system the Cannonball SSK System starts the engine by turning the transmission mainshaft. And just like on a kickstart system you SHOULD NEVER actuate the starter with the bike in gear. If you do so the starter motor will move the bike forward no matter if the clutch is pulled. This can be avoided however by wiring the starter button through the neutral switch.

CB Cannonball Starter Systems Batteries

W&W recommends the use of Antigravity 12-cell or 16-cell batteries.

CB SSK Prevents Rolling Backwards

With the bike in gear and clutch engaged, it does not roll backwards anymore. This is a helpful feature, when taking off uphill, in particular in combination with a foot clutch.
