1) I recently bought a 89 polaris indy 500 trail with electric start. can i use the electric start on a cold start or should i be pulling it over on cold start and using e start for a warm start?

2) I pulled the air box apart and all there was is the plastic devider, no foam inside of it. is this bad to run it with out it? should I buy the foam for it?

Thanks

Someone will correct me if I am wrong, but there should be a foam pre-filter on top of the airbox intake. As far as the electric start goes, I wouldn't be afraid to use it on a cold start.

I was recently told that it was very bad to run it with out the foam because it will get too much air. is this right or wrong?

if it wasn't meant to have it they wouldn't have put it in there.

The foam is there to prevent larger particles (snow dust/powder, seeds/plant parts) of anything from being sucked into the engine. Running without it will not effect the amount of air the engine gets.

I noticed that the foam that is missing is a silencer and when your on the throttle its actually pretty loud. is there anything can put in there to silence it?
