I don't know, my reading up on it says that the four strokes were nearly impossible to pull over due to the high compression, but then again, he was pulling over a Yamaha!

It would work I guess, as long as it released fast enough once the engine started.

Back in the day I was at a race where you had to shut the sled down completely before each drag. My recoil broke on the line and I opened the hood and grabbed the primary gave it a flip with my hand and she fired right up. It works on a warm motor but you'd better have fast hands. This should be one of those don't try this at home items, but it works.......

I remember when I first got on this site back in Dec. and read this thread, shortly after I headed up to Eagle River with some buddies, one of the guy I ride with with has a Skidont with a electric start, well the gear for the starter exploded, but not to worry cuz he still has his pull start, well the recoil broke about a half an hour later. Stuck on the trail dropping a bunch of f-bombs and me cracking up I remembered this post, I grabed another buddies tow rope wrapped it around his clutch, made a t handle out of a stick and sure ship it worked great.

Yup, strap works okay just pull quick. Don't have enough guts to use my hand. As mentioned before, soaking it in Wesson oil for 2 days does the trick. Still on the last OEM from a couple years ago.

I have tried pulling over my 1100 4 stroke with a strap, and was only successful when the engine was warm. Pretty much impossible when the engine is cold.
