I thought I’d post this here as I know not everyone reads the rebuild forum (where the nerds hang out). I recently finished my latest incarnation of the Trident Hunter: 920cc, 10.95:1 compression ratio, Maney cases - crank - race cam - stage 3 head - etc. I also fitted a TTI gearbox. I knew it was going to be somewhat difficult to start. Unfortunately I was more right than I realised. Whilst you could occasionally get lucky, generally speaking it is incredibly difficult to turn over. I fitted total seal rings too, which don’t help. Kick starting became quite a theatrical affair. It always drew a crowd. And we all know Sods Law which dictates a direct link between number of observers and likelihood of the thing not playing ball...! I’m over 200lbs, and the effort I needed to put into kicking it over had me genuinely worried that the kickstart, or something, could fail mid kick, probably putting me in A&E! This was all beginning to detract from the enjoyment of the bike... So, after some chats with Matt, I decided to invest in something I’d long admired, one of his cNw e-start kits. First impressions when opening the packaging was WOW! Such attention to detail and exquisite quality. Due to my bike being so far from stock, fitting was quite an involved job, but I got there in the end. All along I was quite apprehensive, after all, I knew just how dammed difficult it was to turn the engine over, would this kit be man enough? Well, the day came when I’d got it all fitted and wired up. No more putting it off. Gotta give it a go.... WHIZZZZZZ - ROARRRR ! It spun the bloody thing over as if there were no spark plugs in! I was seriously impressed! Overall fitting was really quite straightforward, that doesn’t mean simple as it’s quite a big job. But so long as you read through the very detailed instructions a few times, allocate enough time, and get your brain in the right gear, it’s all fairly straightforward. The kit is clearly made by someone who has fitted many himself, everything is thought of and allowed for. And if you are unsure in any way, Matt replies to emails very quickly, politely, and helpfully. Overal, a seriously impressive piece of kit. I’m well chuffed.
