Yes, the headers on 4 strokes get SUPER HOT...but that doesnt mean that your bike ISNT running lean. you could be lean also, or rich, i have no way to tell.
You should get back to us about whether or not it will push start by using the compression lever...would be interesting to know.

Move your kill switch over close to the compression release lever, no problem.
It's not really a good idea to grab the compression release level while the bike is running though. Just push your kill button to stall the motor.
You should easily be able to push start your WR by getting it up to speed, put it in 2nd gear and just as you release the clutch bump the compression release lever a touch and it should fire right up. Just don't lay on the lever while it's running and it should be fine.
That's worked on my 2000 WR for years and no problems.
You will love that bike. They run FOREVER.
