Hot Start lever, button, switch ???

For the newer four strokes, when you kill it, and try to restart it hot, you pull the lever, and that allows more air into the intake, letting it start easier.

What Timo said Rez - It's kind of like the opposite of "choking" a cold bike. :prof:

It does what they said.

I couldn't find a picture of my setup, so I got one of the interwebsy, it's the little lever below the bars. I'll try to get a picture of mind to night.

NOW I know........thanks a lot, I appreciate it! My idea of a "cold start" is letting the bike sit for a few minutes while I enjoy a beverage....:devil:
 
Mine is a cold start. I pull it in when running through the kick to start when cold and it starts easier. No issues when hot, I just kick it like a girl and she fires right up..:thumb:
 
I have one on my bike and only have to use it when i am riding slow on a hot day, they can be nice to have cuz it helps it start on first kick intead of over and over again . :wiggle:

Couple things....
1) I thought you had an automatic for a minute there........unless that little lever is your clutch and the HS lever is hiding....:smirk:
2) What's that foreign writing on your front fender?????

Good to see you're in good spirits after your clash with death (some places they call em trees!) :prof:..:thumb:
