A kick start would probably suffice. Worked on some pretty big motorcycles. That being said the best thing you can carry is enough emergency equipment that you can walk out if necessary.

You could pull a wheel off and bury it under some brush while you walk out for help.... pretty sure nobody will push a three legged bike out of the woods and I'm real sure it won't roll out on it's own.
On a serious note... It you have a jumper box with built in air compressor or a hand pump, something to plug a hole, extra fuel and a handful of fuses, you are pretty much covered.
Just sayin'...

It is a fact that with the newer machines having a ECU that they require a minimum amount of voltage to even think of firing up. I know on a lot of diesel trucks that voltage has to be above 10 volts or so. Anything below that and forget it. I'm not sure what our ECM's require but they were designed to work on 12 volts and if you go much lower you may be in trouble..

I tried to roll start my 708 going down a steep hill, and the ground was damp and even in 4x4 mode I could not get enough traction to turn over the engine and start it. I don't think the injection would stop it from starting if you can get the engine turning over. There is an answer to the question though.

Carry a spare starter and some tools!

JimP, I did not know that the injectors required power to fire, thanks for the info!

I haven't tore into our injectors but I believe that they are a throttle body type of injector. In other words it looks like a carburetor without the upper part.

The main thing that needs voltage is the ECM that controls everything. It has a minimum voltage requirement and without that it will not turn on. I am not sure what the voltage requirements are for the throttle body injection. I might have to dig into the repair manual and see if I can find something.

Im glad everyone has put in. Its been on my mind for a year and a half. I could understand the idea that its just tooo much to pull start it.

Possibly keep a good drill with you...and take the cover off the cvt and crank that 22mm over? Hmm.

Our injecters have a fuel rail, and they need that 12v to Fire constantly.

Its just food for thought.

Or carry a starter in the toolbox.

I for sure need to add some fuses aswell. Im glad that was brought up

So in order to pull over a 700 would be impossible without a compression release. I also had a 1999 polaris 500 that was easy to pull start because it had a compression release.

Good to know, I did not know that.

Vincent, is there a way to engage the decompression? My 91 Honda 4Trax 300 has a back up kick starter, and it has a decompression lever on the head that does make it much easier to kick and start.
