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