Default 03 summit 7 recoil issues

hopefully somebody can shed some light on this. my cousin has an 03 summit 700 and the damn recoil keeps melting. pretty much just the pawl that engages the engine.

i rebuilt this recoil for him this fall with all new parts. ran the engine long enough to get it on the trailer. he rode from the parking lot in cooke city up to the split of lulu and round lake trails. shut it off and talked for a min, went to start it, nothing.

what could be causing this to happen? heat from the can? i added shock tower venting to both sides this year and also vented a little below the choke lever.

he put on some of that ceramic tape stuff. fabric on the can and the aluminum foil was on the outside. he said that it melted the foil. could this can be doing it? its a superlite by PPP.

I have heard the 1000cc swaps over and is metal, but know that I don't know what the hell I'm talking about

This recoil problem was the biggest problem for this sled until ,the piston ring pins started to fail then ,the recoil didn't matter anymore! The original factory replacement parts were no better. The 2004 and later recoils were an updated design. Current factory parts are reliable. You need to change out all of the internal parts. There is/was a major rebuild kit offered and another one with the spring and the retention clip. The original parts were found to be heat sensitive and failed as you described. Better to put new pistons and chrome rings in now before 2500 miles. Otherwise, these are good reliable sleds.

On my 03 I changed that out three times then ...... I installed a MBRP can. Placed heat protective tape right on the recoil cover and I never had the problem again. I sold the sled last year and to my knowledge it still runs great for the new owner too. Hope that helps.
