I've got a 97 se with a kicker added. No de comp lever. Kick leg And a couple seals and a gear for inside the motor. That being said I didn't install it the previous owner a airplane mechanic did and the added kicker is why I chose that used dr350. It kicks easy when warm. I haven't tried to start it cold with a kick as I have a few screws in my knee so i dont push my leg if i dont have too.
