My hotstart knob on my 2000 426 is a little crooked. I have the Dr. D remote hot start gadget, but dont really like it. Does anyone make a nice replacement for the stocker thats still carb mounted. I cant find anything.....

Well.... I do appreciate the offer, but I'll pony up the $15 for a new one.

Anyway, I lied. I have the Zip Ty one (http://zipty.etc.net...HSSibike-sm.jpg) not the Dr. D. I'll be glad to sell it though. $50 and its yours almost brand new

I'm not real crazy about it either. I could never tell if it was open or closed, I'd have to pull the little foam filter out and verify it was in the off position.

I was actually wondering why you said you werent crazy bout the drd until you mentioned it was a zip ty. its on the wrong side and not very precise

You will however hate the carb mounted system after the 3rd time you have to use it - don't waste the 15 bucks. Everytime you stall or need to use it, it will be a pain in the butt to get to especially on some hill if you woods ride! Buy the DRD set up. It works great and is a hell of lot easier to deal with, than reaching for the carb. :naughty:

you can have my stock one I have several.......

Yeah.... I've considered the Dr. D, but I'm old school and dont like a cluttered cockpit.
I'd surely be interested in a hotstart for a 00' 426, got one for that bike?

BrandonV- the Dr. D kit actually installs really clean and looks almost stock when you are done. I don't think you'd be disappointed with it one bit. I'm super happy with mine, especially since I got it for $60 brand new :naughty: The only drawback is having to remove it when you want to remove the carb. I still have my stock hot start button out in my shed... it's yours if you want it, just PM me your address :naughty:
