What if the battery is dead? With the fuel injection, does it still start so easy or will it start if the battery is dead.

I just picked up a recoil starter kit for my Foreman and I'm excited to get it installed. The directions say I need a pulley holder, but it looks like they're not cheap. Is there anyway to install recoil starter without this tool?

Thanks

Ya hold the pulley with one hand and use a 3/8 air impact to tighten the pulley bolt. Worked great for me. Just tighten the bolt in stages and do not over tighten. Good luck.
