Hi All

does anyone know if you can kick start an ET4 with a dead battery. I am thinking that the anti theft would prevent it.

cheers

You could kick start it but would it start? Why not charge or jump the battery?

It's very hard but possible.

Problem is, with enough force you can crack the case.

The ET4 kickstart was really never intended to be used.
