Easy, take off the housing in which the rope spools from. You'll see that it's pretty self explanitory from here. You'll probably need a wrench of some sort to hold the proper torsion on the spring loaded spool but, then stick the rope in, tie another knot in it and put it all back together.

How to replace starter rope on 1993 polaris indy 500


Good luck! This model usually requires the muffler being removed,the right side of the engine disassembled.... A hint! do not remove the recoil spring unless it is broke. Turn the rope pulley clockwise about 6 times alaign the rope hole in the pulley and the starter housing , push the rope through, it helps to melt the rope ends.after the new knot is tied and pulled tight,gently release the pulley.

Starter cord replacement


Here are the basic steps:
Prepair the new starter rope (about 5 feet of good qualty starter rope size 5.5) by burning the end and shaping into a point and tie a temp knot on the other end. Use a rag to shape the end because it will be very hot. Remove the old rope and align the hole in the spool with the hole on the starter cover and practice incerting the rope thru the guide hole on the cover into hole on the spool . This will be the final action after you wind the spool. You should be able to hold the spool and insert the rope thru both holes and tie a knot while holding the spool in a wound state. Once you have mastered incerting the rope thru both holes and tying a knot you are ready. Now begin.
Wind the spool in the same direction that the spool turns when you pull the rope. You must wind in the correct direction or you may bend the spring out of shape. The spool will begin to tighten as you wind and will eventually stop turning when the spring is fully wound. Once fully wound unwind spool one full turn and stop when hole on spool aligns with hole in cover. Now insert rope as practiced thru both holes and tie knot with free hand or have helping hand. Once knot is tied slowly let spool take rope in untill no more will go in or you reach temp knot. Now tie pull handle and you are done. Good luck.

Starter rope won't retract


You have to wind the spring as tight as you can before you put the rope on. Then allow the spring to unwind, pulling the rope onto the spool. Be very careful when you take it apart. Good luck...Lee
