youll have a hell of time pull starting a 2001 warrior with just the rope... see in 97 and 88 the head a compression release that allowed you to pull the SOB over... the 01 head doesnt have that... what i did with my 94 (also no release) when i got it was, i borrowed a buddies pullstart and would hit the start button and pull at the same time... the starter was still doing most of the work but if it slipped, the rope would keep things going... a major PITA and it didnt last very long until my starter clutch completely locked and caused problems.... if you want to do it youll need the pull starter and also the "cup" from the crank that it catches

RECOIL STARTER

Hi Guys: Heres the way that works ,on the right side of the head theres a lever and you push it down or pull it up I can't remmember, then pull on the cord. ITS NOT AUTOMATIC !, BUT SIMPLE. As for changeing your motor over you will need the recoil starter cover and change out the spacer on your motor to the one with lugs so it will engage with the recoil rope. GOOD LUCK....GREASY.

I just got in from riding my 87 Warrior and yes I used the pull start. Seams the battery died over the winter and I have not yet replaced it. On the right side of the cylinder head, near the exaust outlet, there is a lever you flip upward. This manual compression release keeps the exhuast valve open partialy during the compression stoke. If the engine does not start the lever resets and you have to flip it again for each following pull. Without a compression release head, you would never be able to pull start it.
