The hotstart leans out the mixture. So if you never require it I'd say you'd be on the lean side.

I never know when I'll need to pull mine. If my bike doesn't start with one or two kicks when it's warm or when I fall, that's when I need it.

Just forked out for a Dr. D...
I used a Dr. D remote hot start on my 02 WR426. I loved it!
Be sure to disconnect it from the carb occasionally and clean it. There have been a few that seized up inside the carb. I learned that on TT and never had a problem with it.

Does anyone actually use/need it? I have never needed it on my '02 WR426; it always fires up first kick. Some people must use it, because I've seen people mount it to the handlebars with a DRD kit, I believe it was. Possibly I'm running a tad rich? I went to the YAMAHA dealer and noticed it was not there on the '04s. Is the carb different, or was it a slightly useless feature to begin with?
i have never used it or needed it also.
