I bought this product because I have bought SPI parts before and had good luck with them, this starter lasted 35 miles before it broke. I would not recommend this to anyone, and I am still waiting for my refund. Dennis Kirk has good service I do not want to see this ruin it.
Because ski doo's design with the locking clip is not. But I noticed there is a screw in their recoil just not so sure about quality after having to rebuild my stator in my sled from the clip coming off of the factory one.
The aftermarket recoil is essembled with a reverse thread screw that I have experienced great luck with, I have three sleds that I have replaced with this kind of recoil just make sure your housing bolts are tight & you will have no trouble in the future.
