Just wondering if anyone knows if a recoil/manual starter is available for this machine. I called my dealer and they told me that there was not.

If they look for an older model 500, like a 2011, it is there.


Thanks,

So a 2011 500 HO is the same as a 2013.

When they were looking it up they asked me if was an HO, then then they said no, there is none.

Chances are that Fuji never changed the crank between those years.

recoil for my 2009 HO

Was told that they stopped putting recoil starters on after the 2008 model year. Just picked up a recoil starter for my 2009 HO. Don't know if same starter would work on a 2013 however. Quadcab

I purchased a recoil starter for my 2010 sportsman 500 and my 2013 sportsman 400. I bought them from "fix my Polaris." They are kind of expensive but well worth if your in the middle of no where and need it. It bolts up directly with no drilling or special bolts. remove the old recoil case and put silicon on the mating surface and your good to go!

You need to get one from a 2008 model. It will fit on your machine. Lots of people have done it.

New Polaris recoil starter

I found a couple of used/ rebuilt ones on ebay for around $200. Also on ebay, I found a brand new, complete assembly for $249.99, and that included the standard shipping. I just went back on ebay and rechecked the listing, and they state that this unit will fit 2009 - 2013 Polaris Sportsman. Just do an ebay search for Polaris Sportsman 500 recoil starter and it will show up after you scroll down a few items. The name of the outfit is Tri County Honda and if you call 304-257-4420 and ask for Jon (their ebay guy), you'll find him very helpful and friendly and he should be able to answer your questions. I went with the brand, spanky new starter for $249.99 and Jon shipped it the same day the order was placed. Let us know how you make out and tell Jon that the last guy to buy one (Dave S.) told you to call . Quadcab

shipping

I wasn't aware that they don't ship to Canada. Is it that they won't include the shipping to Canada for that price ($249.99) or do they not ship to Canada at all? You could have it shipped to me in Massachusetts, and then if my Bruins end up playing a Canadian team for this years Stanley Cup.....I could just drive it up to you........Quadcab

I dont think it matters what year the recoil came off as long as its off a fuji motor. The only differance between between them is where the handle is. before or after the starter housing.
