Why brake is applied while using a self start in Honda activa

working of self starter

Report as

According to most instruction manuals I've read (not the active in particular), it's for safety. I've never had any kind of motor "jump" after I've started it, but apparently it's a possibility. I'd guess it's usually the same reason, even for a self starter.

The reason why brake is applied while using a self start in Honda Activa is to give the engine push up for starting. The starter has a caliper that normally jumps with the current that is coming from the battery. Therefore, if the brakes are applied the engine will work efficiently.
