That's some pretty creative shenanigans with the starter, It seems like that would not be kosher as the starter torque would go through the clutch, not to the basket.

Or am I seeing that wrong?

That starter is a kit to put on kick start only bikes like old panhead so you can have electric start. It works fine, you just have to remember to have it in neutral before you hit the button.

What brucstoudt is referring to regarding pistons is to use shovel head stroker pistons in big bore ironhead cylinders.

the Thing about Utilizing S&S 3 7/16" stroker pistons is that 'They are Still Available', this was a Popular choice when Ron Trock was Selling his Cylinders. I like the KISS comments here ...
