FRIDAY I USED the pull starter to start my 500 x-2 atv because the starter won't work. as i pulled it, it backfired and pulled my wrist out. it broke my wrist. this sucks, so be careful if you have to use yours. i have used that pull starter for a week with no problems or back fires. i guess friday just wasn't my day.. theiir talking about maybe putting pins it my wrist, will find out Thursday.
