I have a CM400T 1979 with kickstart and it starts and runs without the battery. I'm wondering if it's ok or it possible to damage the electric system?

Yes it runs w/o a battery. However the charging system is also fully functioning producing voltage with nowhere to go so the coils of the stator will burn out over time, could be as quick as several minutes. Also the positive battery cable will be live while running. I would only do this for testing purposes.

LDR... what about adding capacitors to the system?.. seen and read about it as a "battery elimination" option on other forums ....

Can you send a link or more info on battery elimination kit? I've got the same model, took off all the lights and signals, and could probably lose the battery as well!
