So I have a 78 CB400T2, and whenever I see these bikes, they have a Kickstarter, but my engine, as well as three others I've found on eBay don't have a Kickstarter, and I've also found a right side engine cover with no kickstart hole. I'm wondering if the Hawk II just didn't have kickstart because it had electric start, or if my engine is newer than I think it is...

All the CB400T2 engines were kick and electric start. 1980 was the first model year w/o a kick starter.
What is your engine number?

Could be an engine transplant from a later model, for that matter could be a 450 even if that was the case.
