airhead kickstarter question

So, it seems common to think that the kickstarter of a airhead is not to be used to keep it from snapping something inside the tranny.
I'd like to know what does it mess with and has anybody ever modified one to make it more durable so they could lose the electric starter?
I'm just curious, I've used the kicker on my 60/6 for ever and never had a problem with it so I've though a few times about loosing the magic button on the handlebar.
Sure, the bigger engines are a bitch to kick, but I'd like to believe that's not all there is to this story.
Any thought anyone?

Workshop credo: if it ain't broke, fix it till it is.
