I was very much hoping this involved a ramp and a car painted like the General Lee.

I got a jump for a 1500 Vulcan from a pickup truck. Should work as long as it's a 12V system.

Never had a problem doing it.

I've seen the next door neighbor do it without issues. This doesn't have a backup pull starter?

If they are both 12V it shouldn't be a problem. I would connect the two batteries together and start my car and let it charge the ATV battery for 10-15 minutes, then kill the car and crank the ATV with the batteries still connected. Make sure the ATV battery is not frozen before you try to charge it!
