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.

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.
