S&S: Harley Retro Kick Starter Covers Kits

Harley Parts

These Harley-Davidson Flathead Power reproduction kickstart covers are as close to original as you can get without actually stealing one from a factory museum motorcycle. Externally authentic to the smallest detail, yet improved with new motorcycle technology inside.

Boss imperfections in the casting have been meticulously duplicated to represent the casting capabilities of the era, but that’s where we draw the line. These covers are cast in 356-T6 aluminum and 100-percent CNC machined to achieve the quality standards S&S is known for.

The inside of the kickstart cover is an all new design. Additional material has been added around the kicker boss for strength and stability. A single bushing used for complete oiling. A stealthy modern small diameter seal is hidden after assembly. No more outer dry bushing seizures!

Fitment: 1940-’50 Harley Big Twins Motorcycle

Features and Benefits:

  • Authentic detailing in cover casting
