Need Help
 
Hey,so im fairly new to sledding,and ive purchased a polaris indy classic 500 liquid EFI.

So about 75% of the time when i pull it,it start first pull.

But the other 25%,as i go to pull the pull cord,there is no tension behind it,and i just hear metal clicking,but if i lift up the hood,turn the clutch,then try again,she will go first pull.


i dont to pay someone to replace a million pieces,if anyone has an idea of whats going wrong?and an aprox part cost

sled info:

1993 polaris Indy 500 liquid, EFI

Recoil needs servicing.

^^ Exactly what he said. There are little plastic pieces that get stripped. The metal that actually coils up can also have the ends break/bend. Pull the recoil off and investigate. It can be a 2 person job if you've never done it before, that coil can be a bitch.

You could probably find a used recoil for cheap. It isnt hard to replace, hell I have done it.

Thanks for the replies, so ive sent an email to the guy who generally services sleds in the area, for the recoil spring, will it most likely have to be replaced?or can it just be bent back,or something like that

the sled only has 2000Km on it,so it shouldnt be to bad...Hopefully!

This is probably an easy fix if you make sure the long recoil spring stays in place. If your rope pulls back in, the recoil spring is fine. What you need to mess with is a very small spring that pops the catch into place. The little ratchet mechanism needs to flip out into the holes in the basket that's attached to the flywheel. Your problem is that the ratchet doesn't catch sometimes. Look at this picture:

You may need to replace #6 spring. There's also a chance that the spring and catch just need to be cleaned up and reassembled. I think the factory puts some grease on that assembly and it can get gummed up and covered with cattail fuzz over time. Even if the spring is shot it only costs $2.95.

When you pull off the recoil housing make sure the plastic pulley stays put in the housing. YOU DO NOT WANT THE RECOIL SPRING TO COME UNWOUND! Be very careful when you disassemble the ratchet mechanism. Believe me, you do not want to have to rewind your recoil spring.

Here's a link if you want to look at the whole recoil assembly: http://www.polarispartshouse.com/oem...il-starter-400
