I was just curious if anyone else here is or has had problems
with the recoils on there 800 twin.Mine worked flawlessly the
first season and 3000km.It has been replaced once but still acted
up occasionally after.I keep hearing about an updated recoil for
the 01's.If anyone does know about this could they please let me
know and/or post the new p/n........thanks :D

ive had tons of problems with my recoil(2001 800zx), so i bought the 2003 recoil,paid 180 cdn for it and it has some improvements and looks real good,i was tired of starting my sled from the clutch,try starting it when your up to your chest in snow(i hit the kill switch by accident...arrrghhh)same with my buddy go4it he also had a lot of probs and replaced his recoil with a new one also,hopefully the new style is trouble free

You guys aren't alone, a broken part from my third recoil failure took out the stator about 80 miles from the trailer. 02 ZR-800.

There is one for the 02 800's that apparently consists of a revised
rewind assembly and a heat shield between the muffler and rewind.
If it pi$$es me off any more i may try and see if an older style 670
one can mount on as i have one of my old 98 ???

Hey sled crazy, How many miles on your sled, Mine and Panteraone's rewind went around the four thousand mile mark.

My 02 700's recoil broke with around 400 miles on the sled. Hopefully it was replaced with the updated mechanism.

yellosled, you can tell if you have the updated one if there is a metal round piece on the outside of the recoil cover.
