Electric Start and Manual Clutch: Possible?

My right leg has gotten tired of my Lifan 125 kick start. Takes forever, and invariably foot slides off and my shin gets raked. I am looking for BOTH an electric start motor as well as a manual clutch (not really into the semi-auto). Does Lifan or Piranha make a 125/140/150 that does both? All I seem to see is electric/semi auto or kick start/manual.

2 valve 190cc 5 speed electric and kick. Best of all? Plenty of 12V fullwave juice to run real lighting and
goldwing accessories if needed. $600 and change delivered.

Amazon has the unbranded Lifan’s for $279 shipped and they include the carb, wiring harness, CDI and coil.

Amazon has a couple different options for 125cc with manual and electric start. They have both top mount electric start and bottom.

Mike, do you know of a cure...or help for the tough, high compression kickstart??
Seems like I've read about a CDI that retards, or advances the ignition...to help with kickback..?
Also...I think a cam change could help...lower compression..? I just don't know enough to make any recommendations.

Honestly, I’m in the same boat with you, I don’t know enough either. I’m not experienced with engines over 125cc and the 125’s I’ve used haven’t had a kickback bad enough to go away from the stock setup.
