I got the new longer kickstarter, don't like it, too high.
Nope...going to keep the mangled short one off the old bike!
We had a guy on a Repsol in 2015. first section of the first trials of the year. Impale the starter between his rectum and scrotum. The Dr. in the E.R. could put his index finger most of the way in. That is why I think that`s the best upgrade they ever did.
Took the new Repsol for a spin around the yard aaaaand it only took me about 20 minutes to catch the foot of that stupid kickstand in a rock and bend it. Can’t wait until I’m wealthy as @Brewtus and can afford to buy one of those fancy Mitani ones!
I've got a Mitani one on my Repsol works great. Had the stock one on my 300RR but it's such a Pos I took it off and am doing without. The Mitani is painful to buy and just got more expensive with the CDN dollar being down. I don't ride the 300 very much so until I can pry my wallet open it's fine.
Did you buy it from Banyeres?
No, Overland trial in the states.
How much is this kickstarter?
I can’t remember what he quoted me for the kickstarter, I’ll let you know when it arrives. Funny thing you can’t buy just the arm, you can get the pivot that goes on the shaft separate or the whole assembly.
$240 for the short one...
It's nice having a bike that came from the factory with a good kickstarter
Seems kind of steep, even in CAD. Who's selling them for that price?
I agree, my 2007 and 2017 Montesa both have fantastic stock Kickstarters!
That’s my go to Montesa dealer who usually has anything I need on the shelf. Though it sounds like he may have trouble getting parts, his source was always direct from Spain but something has changed over there. Honda Canada has stopped carrying Montesa as well so it may be more difficult for us up here to get parts and new bikes.,.
I googled the part number, and some US dealers are selling it a bit cheaper:

Ships worldwide. Never used 'em....
Well it looks like I’m back in trials, with a 4rt this time. I’ll pick it up on the second
