Can anyone tell me if it is possible to add electric start to a sled? I think it could be done but was wondering if anyone has done it. I'll probably take it to a dealer but wonder what the cost would be. I am picking up my new 05 800 X today and my wife is getting my '02 700. I'd like to add electric start for her as it pulls a little harder than her Indy500 does.

2005 MXZX 800X for me,
2002 MXZ 700 adreneline for the wife.

You certainly can add ES. They are so pricey if you dont order it with the sled. It will prolly be around $800CAD all said and done. The hardest part is removing the primary clutch. If you have the tools then it can be done. I am in DESPERATE need for an ES for my sled due to health reason. I am going to find one from a wreck. I am hoping to get the new style ES as it has integrated brackets that are much stronger. I also need a 03 or 04 so it can be hooked directly to my RER button as I do not have a keyed ignition.

Yes you certainly can add electric start to your sled. I just did it on my wifes 2002 MxZ 500 LC. The kit cost $530US from the Doo dealer.
I bought a Doo clutch puller for $30 so that I had a good quality puller and I did the install myself - very easy if you are somewhat mechanical. Just my $.02.
