Is there a newer 700 engine that I could put into my 2000 RMK chassis? I would like to have the electronic reverse option. I have a aftermarket drop and rolled chain case so I can't put a mechanical reverse into my sled. Any good canidates for a swap? Also while we are at it was electric start ever offered on the 2000 RMK 700? More than reverse I would love to have electric start.

Electric start could be purchased at the dealer as an option, but it did not come standard on any RMK models as far as I know. You need a primary clutch with a gear ring on it, and then the whole starter and battery system. It adds a lot of unnecessary weight, so was not a standard feature on most mountain sleds. Swapping in a PERC motor would be possible but I think you would need an entire PERC sled so you could swap out all the necessary parts and electronics. I believe it takes a different secondary clutch as well. Not easy by any means.
