Question

Has anyone removed the electric start from a 2014 exc200?

I want to remove the starter motor from the ignition casing but will be left with the port for the starter gear. I noticed the 125 and 150 kind have a blank for this area but not sure if the Ktm 125/150 ignition casing is the same as he 200 as it needs the fixing points for the magneto/stator.

Cheers guys

    Did it on a 2016 ktm 200 saved 5.3kg. Easy fix with the hole where the starter goes,a coke plastic bottle cap fits in perfectly just used a bit of silicone around the cap to make it water tight

    Coke bottle lid fills the hole for the time being

    Try a Fanta top, it's the right colour

    Really? Do you have any photographs? I use the bike for enduro riding and go through some deep mud and rivers. Will that hold up?

    Did it for a client of mine sorry I dont have photo's. It's bullet proof no hickups with the bike as yet and also no water in the stator casing

    Can I ask why? My dad used to ride an XT350 back in the day, got caught in a rut and snapped his ankle. If he had been riding solo, he'd have been trapped out there because you're not kick starting it with a broken ankle. Just something to think about.

    Anyone have photos of the bottle cap please?

    My 250 SX has a cover over where the starter would go.

    For enduro/trail riding, I would want electric start. Its no fun kick-starting when you are stalled on a hill or awkward grade. For MX, sure… pull it off.

    Is it really worth removing it? What improvements will you get?

    Think the extras we put on makes a bigger difference weight wise thab removing a starter motor.

    Weight is weight. The battery and motor are roughly 6lb. Stuck on a bank I'd rather pick up less weight. The 2014 is way heavier than my old 2007
