Default Hand Held electric starter

I just bought a Pro Boat 48" RockStar RTR and the recoil starter is a plastic hunk of junk! The guy I bought it from also gave me one of those hand held electric starters and a few pulleys. I rigged it up to a motorcycle battery and promptly fried the wires! SO, I need some guidance on either 1) a better pull starter or 2) whats the proper way to set up the hand held electric start? There are no specs on the motor but I'm assuming the mc battery is a bit hot?

Thanks for any advice or help!

Buy a good one like a Sullivan Model 4 or Dynatron as both can run off 24-volts and crank it over easily.
A Zenoah Easy-Start pull-starter is a lot better than the stock one. Even an old guy like me with bad shoulders can use one with no sweat.
