the only thing i ca think of that happened is this...
your local shop ordered the hot start for the right hand instead of the left. try bolting it up to your brake lever perch. does it fit and look right. if so, it might belong there. i read somewhere that they make a right one for the CRF i think and also so that people don't accidentally "blip" the throttle while restarting. i guess some people have a tendency to push the throttle w/ right thumb while pushing the hot start w/ left and that causes hard starting. if it's a right, i would send it back for the left. i have seen pictures of both and i don't believe that either one is ment to be pulled. can you post a pic? good luck.

You probably got the lever that has the compression release built in that is for the dirt bikes! Send it back.

it looks like it would be difficult to pull the hot start w/finger and hold in the clutch at same time. do you used this kind?

It isnt that bad, I had a crf450 and thats how they are. You can just use your index finger for it and the rest for the cluch, since it is such a light pull.

Here is a pic of the lever and cable on my quad!

You can't really see the new hot start cable very well though.

Well, my damn P-Brake lever just wobbles around and vibrates now that there isnt any cable connected to it. My question is, seeing that I am keeping my lights and the hot start lever is connected to that little "control panel"... does that mean I should get the one without the hotstart?? Sorry for the not-so bright questions I ask, I am simply not that engine smart yet, I live and learn ^_^

i think that's a big decission because unless i'm wrong(never :lol: ), the lever w/o hot start is less. BUT, if you buy one w/o, then later need one with, you will end up spending more $$$ to purchase the hotstart perch. it would be less $$$ total to buy the first one with the hotstart perch. you follow? :wacko: OR... you could just buy a less expensive lever for now and upgrade later.

Thanks RedDogg, but I wouldn't really ever need it with the hotstart if I keep my lights, right? From what I can see, the hotstart lever is attatched to the "panel" that controls the lights...

Also, this will work, correct? I can leave the stock hotstart on there and not have any problem throwing the works connection lever and perch on??

Thanks and sorry for all the damn questions!

you could use any lever, i would find one thats cheeper then the works connection, the only reason people use it is because of the hotstart button.
yes, correct, right, exactly, and i completely agree. sorry for being so long winded earlier... was just trying to give options.
