Sandblaster is putting one on his KTM/KX 500 conversion. Itís using the TSR billet cases too. Itís going to be almost too pretty to ride.  :-D
Perhaps I have a dirt bike addiction?

the only issue we had with the panthera kit, is that it came with a cheap lawnmower solenoid switch.! It would stick and hang the starter engaged. we replaced it with a street bike solenoid from cycle gear and it worked flawlessly.

The four stroke engine: That's one stroke for producing power and three for wearing the engine out.

We have decompression valves put in the head and it's a gamechanger, its like starting a 125. I honestly don't think the the e start is worth the price and weight

I've been running the decomp for years and highly recommend it. But when your hips start to go that e-button is sweet even though there is a weight penalty.

That right when you start having trouble with body parts , and it only a matter of time for all of us , that e- button is worth it weight in gold.

I've had Adam Millar, Tom Morgan Racing, and Larry do them.
All have performed perfectly.
