05 Rs Rage No Start

I find it hard to believe that this hasn't happened before to anyone, the sled suddenly just quit. You turn it over it just clicks. Nothing. New battery didnt help. Probably starter. Not good.

What happens when you pull it with the cord. Will it start? Does it feel stuck? Was it running and it died or did it just quit starting with the key?

Well I didn't think that they would make a sled that did not have a aux starting method. Foolish me. They have perfected them so well that a secondary system is not needed. I am a strong advocate for redundancey in something that can leave you in the middle of nowhere.

It's a 4 stroke,you can't pull a 4 stroke over. Your car doesn't have a cord does it? Same thing kind of.

You have point there. I am just not real enthused with the way things are going. first they take away the crank on a car then the kick on a bike. Now the pull on the sled. As far as the rope on a car there is a little diff. between 1000cc and 5000cc. I have however pull started (with a rope and tiedown strap) a datson(sp?) b210 several times, a toyota supra and ford ranger. all were autos so the could not be pop started. Just wrap the rope around the crank pulley or harmonic balancer an retard the timing. Yes you can pull over a car motor like that.

Lawn mower engines have pull cords.

4 stroke atv's have pull cords. I agree they should have a aux starting method because everybody doesn't carry a set of jumper cables in the middle of the woods do they????

I guess all your points are accurate,it's just since this is my first Yamaha everybody has said you can't do it to a 4 stroke,forgetting that atv's and lawnmowers do? I do carry a tiny set of cables on mine just in case I need a jump. Maybe they mean like on these 1000cc 4 strokes it's just way to hard to pull over in the cold environment that it's in,just like on cars as an alternate starter,too much motor to be pulling on. I know when I owned a 900cc Polaris Fusion [2 stroke] it was not fun to pull over when it got below 10 degrees. If you are in a warm shop things always start better.

Ouch sounds like big bucks in labor. Did you ask about a secondary emergency start?
