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.
HotCams77C said:. 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).
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.WarriorRacer#13 said: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.
