No pull start on '11

A while ago, my buddy noticed that my 2011 750 KQ only had electric start. His 09 750 KQ has electric, and a manual pull cord.

I had never realized this until then! What gives? Are all 2011 's this way?
I would like to have both for obvious reasons. Do you think I could have a cord installed?

Thanks everyone and happy new year.

On some of the machines when you pull start them with a dead battery they don't generate enough power to run the fuel injector to let the engine start making a pull start useless for that reason.

I know when Suzuki first came out with EPS, the EPS models did not have the pull starter. Maybe they have done away with it on all models?

I'm pretty sure it's possible to add a pull start, but pull starting a big bore is not an easy task anyway. Wasn't too bad when the cc's were 400 and under, and didn't have all the electronic stuff to ignite. :-)

I have pull started my 700 twice once when I got it just to see that it did start. and once with a low battery. I think I would rather kick start my truck. If you do ever try it I do recommend gloves so when it catches you have skin left on your hand.

I'm considering buying the oem parts for one of the model years that did have the pull start to put on my 2011. It appears that all you need to get is the pull start assembly and the flywheel cup. The plastic side cover looks like it is still the same from the pull start equipped models.

It was one of the first things I noticed on the 2012 400 KQ that I bought. I've always liked the idea of having a back up plan. Anyway I asked the dealer about it since the old Eiger 400 had one and as earlier stated they told me the FI renders the pull start useless and I was like that sucks(lol). So now I pay attension to the power when starting it and if it would ever sopund sluggish I'd be buying a new battery before going out very far.

I am not sure on the Suzuki, but I have a fuel injected Honda motorcycle that I can push start with a near dead battery. The injection system doesn't take much power to operate, and if it holds any fuel pressure when shut down there should be enough gas at the injector to get it to fire. However, there are other things beside a dead battery that could make a back up worth while (switch problems, problems with the starter itself,??). Obviously the most common is the battery issue.
