I have heard similar claims (rev faster, weight reduction, etc), and theoretically, it is true. But, I am a fat ass at 225lbs. I can honestly say that I cannot tell a performance difference between my quad that has a kicker and the ones I took it off of.Does the bike feel more "powerful" after installing a kick start? I was told it does so.
My plastics aren't cut, but I needed to kick more with my heal, and I use Rath nerfs with netted heal guards. Not sure if heal guard selection matters or not.Does this require cut plastic?
