I know, I'm still new to this, and I don't yet own a SW, but the question is beginning to bug me.

My first and last bike ( so far ) was a Tao Tao clone 50cc. I remember on that one, if the battery went out, there was a way to "kick start" it ( There was a lever that swung out on the drive side of the bike ), to at least get it moving. Is there a 3rd party kit for this for the SW and where / if not, then why not?

Just a mind bender for now, I know.

No kick start option and it will not compression start either. Why not ? it's not needed battery is easy enough to jump start if needed. Kick starters on newer street bikes are long gone.

Just buy a little jump pack and keep it under the seat or replace battery every 4 years or so .

I recommend REDFUEL SL1 Lithium Ion jump starter kit. It will even start your car and can charge a phone . Safer lithium iron starter much safer than others. Only draw back is cold temps. it will be weaker.

You just caught it fast enough and engine was still turning. I tried coasting down a hill and was above 40 mph no start just wanted to try. Once varinator stops spinning its just unlocked and won't turn engine.
