yeah jason, you know mine has one... i dont know why... it wont start the damn thing... i wouldnt care if it diddnt have one.. i have siliconed mine shut and i just keep mini jumper cables in my dry box! it's not like i ride alone anyways
Yep you can put those jumpers to use on the yamahas, and should you ever need it yourself they are always there for you as an opportunity the other bikes to change roles and help a cat, I knew they were good for something.
Yea you will find that some of the 07's have it and some don't looks as if they changed mid stride. I know we have some tbx's with the pull start then many of the others don't have it. I don't know that I would totally believe the breaking rope issue, not saying it isn't happening but they are still putting the aux pull starts on the 700s. If you pull through your compression stroke nice and easy then pull it all these machines pull like 90's.... either way Cat does have a retrofit kit I can get the part number for anyone interested I have it at work. Let me know, I can even get you a good deal on it if you would like one.
