After installing the handlebar switch assembly on my '04 when I dual-sported it, I could no longer use my hot-start lever, because it hit the switch body. Not wanting to re-locate the lever somewhere else on the bars, I designed and had a machinist buddy of mine make a spacer to raise the hot-start lever up so it would clear the switch body. It works like a charm. If any of you guys are interested in one of these, PM me--my buddy has the program saved on his CNC mill, so it won't be hard to make more.

It didn't come in a kit--I ordered it from fourstrokesonly.com. It wasn't cheap--it seems like it was around $50 or so, but it had all of the controls on it that I wanted. :thumbsup:

I'd love to do them for nothing, but I have to pay for the CNC machine time. These aren't anodized at all (trying to keep the cost down) PM me and I'll give you the details. I'm not interested in trying to make a ton of dough--heck the information I've gotten from this site has saved me plenty.
