    Our WR426 had a kick start, we fitted some italian electric-start kit. The quality of the kit was marginal. The 450 has electric start so that shouldn't be a problem.

    I like that picture. Testing an inboard suspension chassis without loading it through the suspension is complete garbage, if you ask me.
