250 trailblazer Broken pull rope help!

My stupid pull rope broke today! i dont have a starter on my trailblazer so this really really sucks! where can i buy a replacment rope WITHOUT the recoil unit? my recoil is fine! and i know how to rewind it as i broke the rope once before on the end. This time it broke in the middle so i cant just put it back on. Can i just get some nylon cord and cut it to length? or like i said can i just buy a new rope and handle?

A trip to the hardware store fixed it. Heavy nylon rope same diameter and I figured out how to take the old handle apart. Made the rope a little longer as it was way too short from breaking before. Also I picked up enough extra to make another pull rope if it happens again . I'll just throw it in my truck since I have pull start only. Cost $2 for enough proper sized cord to make a new pull rope to replace the broken one and a spare for it and my other quad.

How much rope did you put on it? My pull cord seems short on mine and it broke at the knot yesterday. I put it back on but i'd like to replace the cord, not sure how long it should/can be.
