During the cold snap, I tried to start my xplorer 300. It was froze solid and the battery was dead. When I charged the battery and tried it, the starter just winds and doesn't engage. The pull cord freely comes out and doesn't engage either. Is there a quick fix? Is it just still frozen? Please help...

Sounds to me like you have water in the recoil housing. Both the recoil and the starter bendix are mechanical and if the get wet the could freeze up an stop working. I would pull your recoil cover off and melt those two pieces.

When you pull the recoil there should be a little tab that pops out.

Does the right side foot well have to come off to get at the housing for the pull cord? Is the starter located in this housing as well?
