Welcome
Never seen one with e start
Well the The high end models had Starting motors and oil injection, this units oil injection has been deleted buy the previous owner, the kawasaki engine has the mounting holes for the starter and the hole for the pinion gear to turn the fly wheel, i figure i could mount a starter and just directly jump it with a jumper pack, i just cant find anyone who wants to sell their starter.

The starter kit was a dealer add on back in the day. Not many people put them on, so that will be a hard one to find. Also look at Sportfires for the starter. They used the same kit. But, even less people put them on those sleds. But, I have seen them on there.

The oil injection was a problem on the 82 Trailfire LX. It was the first year that Deer went to oil injection on that sled. That is why it was probably disconnected.

Ask over here also. Someone may have a starter laying around in the shop.
