I recently purchased a 1985 suzuki lt185, the guy said it needs new recoil starter, and I bought a 86 recoil starter (all the other recoil starters I came across said fit 1984-1987 I went to go put it on but the recoil starter hits the cap starter (as in block it from being fully put on.) This is the cap starter I have on my atv at the moment.
ok The problem I am having is where the knot of the string pops out and the plastic around it, that interferes with the cap starter. Now, I am not sure if the recoil starter is compatible or if the cap starter is..
My question is, would that work or would I have to order new parts?
