actually it's the other way round. and this will be applicable to a motor (which is same as a generator, in DC world). we are discusing a generator.

terms don't matter as long as you got the concept right.

Im not very sure about this. i have seen it in Kinetic old models. They have the choke activation dne only when you turned on the ignition and you pressed any of the brake engaged.

The only kinetic I drove once would not start unless front brake was applied.

choke is activated once the ignition is switched on and it deactivated after about 10 seconds automatically by an inbuilt timer device. brake engaging turns on the electric starting circuit and its not connected to the choke. all kinetic hondas pre 1999 are with auto choke and its from the y2k series that a manual choke was provided below the left handle bar grip.

like i have said above, the brake circuit is a safety system to minimize the chances of the bike leaping forward upon self starting since there is no neutral gear, being a variomatic. when kick starting the vehicle the brake need not be applied.

The kinetic never had the system where you had to apply the front brake. Its always been the rear brake, even with the activa. All the Suzuki bikes have the same system where you have to pull in the clutch lever.

WRONG my dear straight6. front or rear makes no diff to starting. what are you referring to? on varios, either brake is sufficient to operate the starting circuit be it a honda, suzuki, tvs, kinetic etc etc.

I still have a kinetic('94)and it only starts with the rear brake being applied not the front, and I can remember another one that belonged to an uncle of mine with the same system. And my cousins activa('05) will also start only with the rear brake being applied not the front. I have no idea when they have changed this.

On the blaze, either of the brakes is ok. You have to have any one brake applied when you start the vehicle.

there has been no change in the system since 1985 since the launch of the kinetic. on the kinetic or activa or access or scooty or pleasure or kristal or wave or dio, either brake can be used to engage the starting circuit for the starter motor, unless the front brake light switch has failed in the cases that you have mentioned. check with any decent kinetic mechanic and he will confirm the same.

I have one more question.

Suppose if i increase the winding of the magneto, would it have an effect on other components like the speedo/indicator/tail light bulbs and the battery? If so, what are the precautions that need to be taken?

Thanks in advance for taking the effort to answer!

Kumar.

A kick start bike will have a lesser ampere battery, hence a less powerful alternator, hence lesser fuel consumption, in theory, however in practice, they might use the same alternator, and the difference if any would be marginal,
