Bad Starter! No problem

If your starter goes bad while out on a ride, don't worry. Take a piece of rope and wrap it around the primary clutch housing about three turns counter clockwise. Give it a hard pull. A cold engine may take up to five pulls. For emergency only!

Thanks, Did you buy the $100 Polaris starter, from ebay, from your other recent post? If so let us know how that went. Cannot wait for the video.
