The earlier kick only model LC4's had an SEM ignition that didn't need any battery power at all to run.
so mister Gaspipe can you install a SEM Ignition module on a electric start version...!?!?
or is the newer Kokusan ignition that much more evolve that will be a waste to use the SEM version.??
I just think is kind of stupid to have a kick start if you need a full charge battery to run the bike anyway, since If the battery was working I will not need to used the kick start in the first place..
