Default No Estart for the Alpha1

Coming form a Yamaha Viper I've really gotten used to the turn the key and go. I don't mind the pull rope, but would really like electric start. Any one herd if there a add on kit? I cant seem t find on in the accessories catalog.

On the cat site Alpha spec list, it states e-start is an accessory.
I am sure the dealer can install it.

Alpha ......

Has anyone confirmed that the Alpha is not available with Estart? Even from a spring order?

The problem with the Proclimb estart set up is the the non estart sleds come with a short tank and short seat, the estart sleds have a long tank and long seat(battery is mounted under the seat) so do to an electric start upgrade on a non-estart sled, you need to swap gas tank & seat, along with the clutch ring and the rest of the kit. Big PITA

With aftermarket can, battery fits up front, no need to swap tanks.

That's the way to do it. Like the short seat and weight savings that come with it. Seems silly to have a different seat and tank just for estart, Cat engineers must be sleeping

Its the same seat and tank design they've had since 2012 when they were all the same: 2S, 4S, ES, non-ES. Probably figure it's easier and cheaper to just keep using it since people that have opt for the ES don't worry about weight as much.

I love the larger volume tank on the non-ES proclimb. On my 18’ I bough a non-ES and add it with a lithium battery under the hood. That’s what I’ll do on my 19’
