Adding a Kickstart to a 3AJ Tenere.

Post by ActionManMelb » Wed Nov 11, 2015 1:46 am

Here is a slide show of the steps and parts needed to do a kicker conversion on the electric start only models from 1987 onwards.

Don't forget to 'right click' and open in a new window.

Fixed the order and added titles and some arrows for clarity.
You have to hover your mouse over the top of the photos to see the titles.
There may be a better way....open to suggestions.

You can try viewing as a story......

Its a bit clunky with Photobucket, you would better off just writing a normal post & adding the pics with instruction Dave.

I know we have a problem with photobucket, but I was poking around today and found that my link in this story is still working.
There may be a workaround for the problem. :shades:
