well, the starter on my 03 warrior went a while ago, so i just got the pull start conversion kit. Since i have started bigger snowmobiles by pull start before, it has been pretty easy for me to start, even though i have a 10.25 :1 comp piston, and no decomp switch. well, i figured to lessen my chances of having any other electrical problems in the future, i would try something. heres what i did: took out the battery, took off the ground battery wire. took off the positive wire from the solenoid ( this included the 15 amp main fuse). off of both, the posi and negative wire were little wires, i unpluged those both, and wrapped the ends in tape. i pulled the starter one pull and it fired up and ran great. i was just wondering if anybody else has done this, and if it is safe because i dont want to run it anymore to make sure it wont short out my magneto (MAG), especially without the posi on the solenoid anymore, or a main fuse, just because i wasnt sure if the mag had to have somewhere to send power ( like a power generator to charge the battery). thanks ppl. btw, i am also posting this in the warrior forum.


thanks,
josh

A warrior is hard to pull start stock, let alone with a higher compression. my undle had one on his 88, and the cord broke almost everytime. I dont know if a snowmobile one would really help or not.

i was thinking about putting a pull start on mine also just for back up though cause it is really nice to have electric start but unless your like really into mx or something and going realloy light weight i think you should of left your battery in, and does anybody know if and old pull start will fit like a 2002?

HotCams...I'm not sure about taking out the battery, though I would think it wouldn't matter. I mean, a kick-start twostroke still has to have a magneto to generate the charge to spark the plug, and it doesn't have a battery. Maybe it produces less spark than the Warrior. i honestly don't know.

As for everybody else..READ WHAT THE MAN SAID! His starter went OUT...that's why he put on the puller. And the starter is the biggest reason for the battery, so he figured why not take it out. It wasn't ALL about shedding weight. And the pullstarter itself is NOT from a snowmobile. He jsut said that he's pullstarter SM's before, so the Warrior wouldn't be too hard. C'mon people...read what the question is before you start talking.

Raptorboy...yes, the old pullstarters WILL bolt right up to the newer quads. The engines are almost identical. I think you may have to have something that fits on the end of the crank where they meet up. not sure, tho. For that matter, I would bet that it would bolt up to a mini-Raptor, too, since it still has the same motor.

yes, i have a pullstart, same as older, just looks newer, and yes you do have to have a pulley that fits that like "keyway" star grooved thing on the crank, instead of the other piece. other than that, not that hard. it does require a gasket tho, which your yamaha shop should tell you all you need. all in all, it was about 200 bucks total.

and thank you warriorracer#13 for understanding and actually reading the topic :tup:

If you get the valve cover decompression off an 87 or 88 it pulls over a lot easier. Waite till it's below freezing and give it a pull. Hang on to your shoulder. A snowmobile is a lot easier to pull. I have found that the Warrior's stator coil is weaker than most and can (and has on mine) burned out do to not having the battery in. Happenes quite often after a battery terminal breaks at the battery. You will also see that the head lights are dimmer working off the coil without the battery. Start the quad and pull the + cable off and you will see. You also loose the nutral and reverse lights. $40 for a used starter is still cheaper than finding and buying a GOOD recoil and crankshaft adaptor.
