Default New Estart Contact - Can i get an E-start kit?

Hi all.
Just a question.
My wife is SHORT.
She does our hard enduro rides with us on a 2009 txt125 with a seat fitted.
I would LOVE to change that to an e-start as i cannot afford to buy her a new Contact with the exchange rate where it is now.
I have seen the new Contact 250 that is coming out has e-start so i was wondering if GG would sell the e-start kit that i can fit on the 2009 txt125.

Does anyone know?

The old saying is, "Never say Never" but in this case, logic would dictate no.

Well...your welcome I guess but holy cow man, this is should be common sense. GasGas is here to sell new motorcycles. We don't stay in business by offering ways to NOT buy a new GasGas. What would be the point of even offering new bikes???

Even if there were a "kit" the price for CDI, stator, starter motor, wiring harness, etc would be 3x more than the trade in value on your 9 year old trials bike, towards a new Contact.

GasGas trials machines hold their value very well. Put some skin in the game. Sell that 09 and pick up a new bike.

Yeah looks like i will have to. Or look at moving her onto something else i can actually get secondhand.
Also keep in mind. I have to maintain 3 GasGas race bikes in tip top condition year in and year out for two racers. My spend on GG parts alone per year puts plenty skin in the game.

Dang man, supporting 3 GG race bikes and 2 riders, you need to start sharing some race reports / photos with me. What series are you participating in? Shoot me some pics and rider info so I can post it on the GasGas FB.
