I hate this I did this a few months ago and I ended up having to drill my plunger out, man I never want to do that again really you don't need a hot start if you trail ride, for fun anyway. I think they are made for mx more. I've seen people with choke plugs there and it doesn't look bad one less cable to lubeSo at the first ride of the season last weekend the hot start ended up stuck closed wich is a good thing if it's gonna get stuck.. Finally got around to it today.Man was it stuck. It worked fine last time I washed the bike when this thread was started. Man it was stuck. I ended up yanking the cable lose from the plunger and soaked it for quite some time and trying to get it out. Ended up breaking one of the plunger ears but finally got it out with a pair of needle nose. I have a PC cap but it still got stuck but of course it hasn't been opened up since it was put on 2 yrs ago. So it cost me a new plunger and some time. It really sucked for just being lazy and never greaseing it.I should just put a choke switch in the hole. The bike very rarely needs it.
Grease your hot starts once in awhile before they stick.
