Kiwi Indian Electric Starter Kit
1940-53 KI-10330L
1935-39 KI-10330E

Kiwi Indian Motorcycles has developed the ultimate electric starter. With this kit, just pop off the chainguard & kickstart assembly, drop in the electric starter, run a few wires, throw a few parts back on and you are ready to ride.


  • *Easy installation
  • *Fits neatly under chainguard and looks part of the original design.
  • *High torque, gear reduction starter.
  • *High-end ball bearing/keyed/sealed Sprag clutch.
  • *Partial gear/chain drive. Gear primary drive for torque reduction and positive engagement. Chain final drive allows for frame misalignment.
  • *Battery remains in same position as stock.
  • *Starter Button included.
  • *Fits both 3 and 4-speed transmission.
  • *American made and engineered.


*Must be 12v converted (see below for conversion kit)

* All Parts and wiring is included in kit (except 39933 offset kickstart stud and battery)

Note: The Kiwi electric starter is sold as a kit ready to install to your motorcycle. This unit is easy to install and does not require any modifications to your bike as we have designed this assembly to tuck nicely in behind the chain guard. Your kickstart stud will have to be removed from the frame and replaced with the 39933 Kiwi offset stud so as to obtain the correct chain tension.The electrical system has to be upgraded to 12v (see Generator section). My new high capacity battery sits neatly on top of the starter unit. Electric starter kit includes everything other than 39933 offset stud and Battery. If you have a 1952-53 model you will need to order KI-10330BR separately. Wiring and starter button is included. It’s the slickest thing for your Indian that has ever been invented.

Note: Always start your motorcycle with the spark fully retarded. For overseas orders we cannot ship batteries. You MUST ONLY fit a genuine YUASA brand battery. I did a lot of testing and all others came up substandard and will result in problematic starting
