Let us know how it goes Justin.

Looking for a replacement for mine as well. Stock sucks. End isn't long enough when it's muddy to kick properly.

Yep they are the crap.... Might have to let me know when you got em, i might be interested :) Do you have the ORK installed on yours? I can't remember, i just ask as I know once i installed mine it kicked over a hell of alot easier.

Deffinately smoother, the biggest difference was kicking it over. It now has bugger all kickback, so I don't have to worry about it bending :) Not that the kickback is bad, but it did feel like it would of damaged the kickstart spine over time. as for the areldite, can't believe i havn't thought of that sooner, thats now this weekends job, after i finish with the wifes new bike.
