I second that Johnny is awesome.I would HIGHLY reccomend buying the kit from JH Racing (j-hracing.com). The guy that runs it is super nice and will help you with anything you need. The kit cost $390 but it comes with the main ratcheting assembly already assembled. It also comes with a rubber plug that goes in place of the starter if you decide to take it off.[/b]
I use the e-start alot more than the kicker but they both work excellent. This last weekend when using the e-start I used the hot start also and it seemed to start even easier w/ the e-start. I had the carb bored and had the hot start drilled on my stock FCR e-start carb.
I didnt think this kit cost near 300 bucks...i have a friend that will need to do it soon..Below is a parts list breakdown to convert the 06-08 TRX450ER to a KICKER...

During kicking, the CDI requires a higher level of power than the stator can output to enable the CDI's operation- where there is no battery on the frame on the KICKER setup to continuously 'power' the CDI ....
To supply electrical power to the CDI on the KICKER setup during startup, a Condenser is used to store energy- similiar to a battery ability to store energy. The Condensers ability to store energy is extremely short lived compared to a battery. During engine opration, the Condenser will store the charge from the Regulator/Rectifier which is mounted on the rear subframe where the batteries location would be on the electric start version... The location of the Condenser is under the hood... The kick start Condencer costs about $25 from service honda...
You can either buy a new KICK start electric wiring harness, or you can splice the Condencer into the wiring, the later being the cheaper modification...[/b]
