battery drain problem
« on: April 06, 2011, 06:31:54 PM »
Hi Guys, Been reading many posts on this problem and I am currently testing aspects of the bike for parasitic drains etc. My question tonight follows the replies from members who back up their start problems with the use of a kick start. That seem like a simple but very useful way to get round the sluggish starter motor resonse.
So I have looked on ebay for one but no joy. Do you guys know of a kickstart from any other bikes that will match the splines on the xs1100?.
Regards Huddie

Which XS1100 have you??  Coz it matters.

I have a RD250 kickstart lever on mine, but there is issues around footrest clearance, I think one of the NZ lads on here had trouble putting a folding lever on his Sport. Mine is on a bike with custom made rearsets which were made to clear the swing of the lever.

XS750/850 US models have a slight dog-leg in the lever which might clear the footrest, worth looking at. I think most of the bigger Yamaha of the same era splines are the same.
It makes you look a tvvat but question everything!!

Hi Tom It is a 1978 Model that makes it an E if I'm correct.

I think the XS750 US style dog-legged levers will fit the 1978 2H9, the anoraks on here will tell you that the E was a US model designation :anorak :anorak :anorak but we know what you mean :wink:

I have one to go on my 2H9, not tried it yet :rolleyes:

Here is a dog-legged lever to show what I'm waffling about.

And a straight one clicky to show the difference,

The dog-legged gives more clearance
