i have elect start on my zl 600 and i think its useless unless you have some physical problem that makes it harder than normal to pull it over i think its a waste im not sure what went into installing it since i had someone do it for me but i think especially on efi its really not worth the money hope some one can better answer your question
efi is almost guarenteed to start second pull even on the coldest mornings -20F it still started second pull the battery died in my zl so i never bothered recharging it just doesnt seem worth it i guess now for the 660 if the battery dies im screwed
Going to put the kit on my wifes new ZR900EFI this weekend. Brought the
sled home today. She cant pull it over and bitches about having to wait
for me to start her old sled.. ZL600EFISS...I pulled the T-CAT and I pull

Arctic Cat BEFI (battery electronic fuel injection) means you don't need E start, if you can't start the sled by pulling it you seriously have to consider if your strong enough to ride the machine, and I am not being a smart ass with that comment by any means.
I doesn't have anything to do with wether or not you are strong enough to pull it over and being able to ride the sled. The bateryless efi still has to have a good rip to get the pump energized, i just think of the electric start as a back up. I would rather pull start it, just because I never had the starter before, i know my 800 tripple at 30 below was no easy thing to start, I heard these 900's are a bear to turn over also, so I guess i will have to find that out for myself, but I know if my wife wants to take the sled then i won't have to be there all the time to start it for her, she can't pull it over at 70 degrees, so the starter is the ticket, and yes she can still handle the sled on grass standing it on the rear bumper. :banana:
