I have to ask, why? Honda's always seem to start so easily. Heck, my 13 horse Honda generator has electric start and I don't even know if it works. I never put a battery in it to find out. Personally, I think it will be counterproductive. Something you may want to check if you do go ahead with this. Is your flywheel geared for electric start? I don't know that much about Honda engines other than all them I have ever owned never needed any repair except for one carb. They may all be geared for all I know.

I put a similar kit on my Honda mower. Works great. And the reason you want one is so that your wife can start it EASILY. Once I installed it, she decided she liked mowing the lawn and started doing it. Who knew?

I guess one of the main reasons is I have a Yamaha 1028 that I'm not happy with, that has an electric start, was planning on selling it and keeping the Honda HSS724, I agree the Honda starts very easy with the cord, just torn on what to do

that's funny. also electric start option is a good selling point if you ever want to sell.

Are all Honda flywheels geared for a starter?

i don't think so. i read something about this last year and may be wrong but i don't think they are. they have a kit on ebay that includes a flywheel.

no sure.

personally , i would never do a conversion. for $200 more you can buy the HSS Honda with the electric start in the first place.
