I took my pullstart housing off and removed everything out of it and then put silicone all around it and stuck it back on. Make sure you fill the pull start string hole with something to. I used a bolt and filled it with silicone. Seems to be working good, but theres noway to tell. My buddy wants me to do his like that, so iam going to take mine off again and see if it held up.

sounds like a good idea until the battery dies on the trail. no pull starter.

You're right, it is a risk you take. I just keep it in mind that I dont have a pull start when we stop for awhile at night and drink with the lights on. I always have the other guys leave there lights on. When I took mine off for the first time it had alot of mud in it so I just took it all the way out.

I bought a pull start plexiglass cover and removed my pull start. I had never used the pull start before, so I didn't think I'd use it later.
I purchased it at HL and am very happy with it.

I can count on one hand the number of times I've had to use my pull start on both my atv's and ski-doo's in the last 5 years. The electric systems are pretty good these days. When I did have to use it on my atv I just about puled my knuckles off when it kicked back.

i've read that will crack and leak, use with care. also i think you have to use the pull start when you are doing the valves.

the best way is to silicon it because then if you really need it you will be able to use by just brakein the silicon
