Default Will it start?

Hey,so i have a polaris indy 500 EFI

so ive had issues with the EFI,and im bringing it to the shop tommorow,i am aware that you do not need the EFI to run the sled,but you need it to start it.

i have to ride it 3km to get it to the shop,i cant get it started because the EFI is not running

if i put a gas soaked rag/liquid fire inside of the air intake box(where all the filters are,under the EFI board),will it start(then close the box up once it starts)

if anyone can pull any sense from that,can someone give me a yes,or no before i try for an hour doing it

The engine needs fuel to run. No fuel injection, no moving...

LOL No. the electronic fuel injection is what injects the fuel for the engine to run on.
Simple - no fuel - no run
Now if it was just the start mode and not the run mode of the computer your thought might be valid. Spray it and see what happens. Most likley nothing.
