Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am going to assist you with this.

There is an electric start version of the SVP5000 out there.

The parts to make it electric start are most likely available, but it would be very cost inefficient to convert it. By the time you bought a new flywheel, a starter, solenoid, and the other associated parts, it would be just as cheap to buy a new generator.
