It's like something out of science fiction – you just push a button to start your sled, yet the system weighs next to nothing. Now as standard for BoonDocker DS and BoonDocker RE models.
SHOT starting is only possible with advanced Rotax E-TEC technology. After a first pull-start, the engine charges a lightweight ultracapacitor. For later starts, that stored energy turns the magneto into an electric motor; it turns the crank and E-TEC does the rest.
During a day riding in the mountains, you either had to pull-start your sled dozens of times or lug around 9 kilograms of electric starter. Either way, it’s energy you’re not using having fun. With the E-TEC SHOT starter, you pull start once in the morning, then push-button start the rest of the day. And it only weighs 0.9 kg more than pull-start.
Push the button. With the ultra-capacitor charged, your SHOT-equipped Lynx will function as if it has push-button electric start. That means less energy wasted on pull starting, and more energy for riding.
Each morning, pull start your snowmobile as you normally would.
As you ride, the engine's magneto charges a lightweight ultra-capacitor with enough juice to start your snowmobile.
