Kick Start Pedal

    I want to purchase a "Pedal" for my kick starter.

    I think I hurt my foot wearing cheap shoes & kick starting my motorcycle.

    A pedal would me more ergonomic for my foot etc.

    "Low Brow" sells them (Brass & made in USA) for about a hundred dollars, which seems expensive?

    I read online that ones made in China are likely to break? 

    I guess that I am getting old - My foot could take the punishment when I was younger.

    Please let me know If you have any advice.

    Thanks,

    Don Chambers

    I have a simple  idea of how to make my own Pedal & use the existing Kick start spindle on the Bike.

    I will let you know if it works.

    I have experienced the same thing: my foot hurt like hell after starting the bike.

    I realized I was wearing boat/dock shoes....... 

    When I wear proper footwear - boots - I never have a problem.  Your issue may not be the kick start pedal but footwear.
