    My kids '09 Grizzly 125 didn't have recoil start and I thought it was because it was a kids' machine. Not sure why a carb'd machine wouldn't have a pull start.

    I have a big boss 6x6 polaris 2006,500 4 stoke, This machine has a carb, I didn,t pull the batt. this winter and was dead this spring,I could not pull start this machine without a good batt. it will not start..I jumped it with the boat batt.Fired right up,but if i disconnected the good batt. machine would die..even after 1/2 hour running and unloading the boat the machine would not stay running if i dropped the good batt..I put it charger over night all is good now.... FYI.So if you kill this batt. in this machine the rope starter is false sense of sercuirty..I have had 3, other 94,95,96, 6x6,s all 400 two stokes and they will run without good batt.Don,t know if was because 4 stoke, or what, it doesn,t have efi.. So That way it is..with this machine.. Glad i found that out now instead of 40 mile back some where.. Like i said FYI. Maybe this info. keep someone from having to be towed some day, Happy Trails.

    Another trick might be to age your two batteries 2 years apart (from being new). Batteries seem to fail consistently at 4-5 years, and that way you'll always have a young one.

    When my wife bought her Ranger, I noticed it didn't have a pull start, so I had them install a second battery with a switch like in a boat. Peice of mind when your out in the boonies. I also carry a Battery Jumper Pack with me that also has a cigarette lighter adapter to run a small air compressor or other 12 volt items. Better then Jumper Cables as you don't need another ATV to get a jump start from.

    Interesting thought, My M7 has batteryless EFI. First pull charges the thingy, and the second pull starts it...why don't they do somthing like that on a wheeler. They would just need to add a decompression switch/lever like the old Honda 3 wheelers had.

    Some how I missed Greythorns above post, yes batteryless EFI, and it works great. Maybe the mapping on a 4-stroke EFI system is more complicated.

    u dont know what your talking about obviously, as arctic cats have batteryless EFI! and had it for years already!

    I have a 700 AC with a pull start and have used it a couple times in the yard after extended periods of storage. It pulls pretty easy though at over 260lbs I have some weight to toss into it! For those of you worried about it one of the new lithium batteries may be just the ticket.

    10-4! I have a set of ATV/Motorcycle cables that fit into a little 8"x8" nylon pouch, they have much smaller clips than ordinary cables for tight spaces, and they work great. I've even used them on my truck a couple times!

    I really like having the pull start there. I tried it on my 700 when it was new to see if I could, and I was successful. Never did have to use it though. My Rancher had one, had to use it a couple of times. This was always guaranteed to pull once, the recoil part tended to get bound up with silt and forget to recoil.
    New machines are unforgiving for people who would like to ride out no matter how slowly. They tend to either run or not.
