    I don't know if there is a kit to add the starter but it shouldn't be too much trouble to add one. All you need is the correct flywheel, charging coil, starter, soleniod, a key switch or push button, wiring harness, battery and a battery tray.

    All in all it would probably only cost you 300 or 400 hundred dollars. You'd probably be better off trying to find an old Kawasaki that already has these parts and swapping them over to your engine.

    I would just keep the recoil. I've got a 14 hp Kawi. That I wanted to change out but the additonal cost and ecletronics upgrade isn't worth it.
