Kick Start
KICK START is a method of starting an internal combustion engine (usually that of a motorcycle ) by pushing a ratcheting lever with one's foot. Kick start
Kick start
mechanisms were almost universally a part of motorcycle engines before the mid-1970s, and were phased out of production over the next twenty years or so as electric starters became standard equipment. There are still some motorcycles produced that have both kick and electric starters. Many mopeds and scooters also carry both a kick start and an electric start, the former being useful in case the latter fails, as scooter and moped batteries tend to be smaller and, as a result, run down much faster than other forms of automotive batteries.

Starter (engine)
A STARTER (also SELF STARTER, SELF, CRANKING MOTOR, or STARTER MOTOR) is a device used to rotate (crank) an internal-combustion engine so as to initiate the engine's operation under its own power. Starters can be electric , pneumatic , or hydraulic . In the case of very large engines, the starter can even be another internal-combustion engine. Internal-combustion engines are feedback systems, which, once started, rely on the inertia from each cycle to initiate the next cycle. In a four-stroke engine , the third stroke releases energy from the fuel, powering the fourth (exhaust) stroke and also the first two (intake, compression) strokes of the next cycle, as well as powering the engine's external load. To start the first cycle at the beginning of any particular session, the first two strokes must be powered in some other way than from the engine itself
