    Starter Solenoid for Casper

    Does anyone know if and where I can get a Solenoid quick and it must be new- I race the open ocean so I don't want used, I need it by Thursday, its part number 4011043 looks like it was used on many models so I was wondering if anybody knew who I can check with and has it in stock as Jay would in the good old days when Atlantic Power Sports was open

    That would be the new design brown solenoid, not the unreliable Black one with the metal backing plate.

    The better 4011043 solenoid (Brown body) was used 2003-2004, and also retrofits to the 1999-2002 models.

    Edit:
    Polaris Kit 2874369 - Harness, DFI, Solenoid Diode
    Sometimes the coil inside the original Black solenoid will generate an electrical 'back EMF' pulse when the Start button is released, just after the engine has started running. That pulse would confuse the Ficht EMM, and it would promptly shut the engine down.

    Polaris issued a fix, in the form of a revision kit, part number 2874369. The kit consists of a diode spliced into a replacement solenoid wire harness connector.

    For reference, the diode inside the kit is simply wired between the Black/White and Yellow/Red wires, with the Cathode (Banded end) of the diode connected to the Yellow/Red wire.

    When the Start button is released, the diode absorbs and snubs the electrical spike from the solenoid coil.

    In the new style Brown 4011043 solenoids (or the even newer and better one-piece all-plastic black solenoids), the diode is integrated inside the solenoid, so the diode kit is not necessary (but would not cause a problem if it was already installed).

    Arrow Black solenoid failure PN 4010858 (1999-2002 Genesis & Virage)

    For reference, here is what a Black 4010858 solenoid looks like, when it fails.

    As Bernie has described, the rubber seal fails, and corrosion gets inside the solenoid. The result isn't pretty.

    The better 4011043 solenoid (Brown body) was used 2003-2004, and also retrofits to the 1999-2002 models.

    Whoa.......those are a plug-in style. My bad.

    If it's a plug in style like the pix of the bad ones, then the solenoid is probably interchangeable with sea-doo. And yes, the black sea-doo solenoids were junk!! replaced about 30 a year in the shop.
