I crashed and managed to break my decompression lever and the Honda shop wants 22 bucks for a new one. I guess the knockoff brand levers don't make a decompression lever for the BRP.

I found a cool MSR clutch lever and hotstart for 10 bucks more then a new lever. Is there any reason this setup WONT work for the clutch and decompression on a 650R?

There isn't any reason that it won't!

Cool, thank you. My main concern was if the little lever would have enough throw to work the decompression mechanism. It looks like it would and I wanted to see if anyone has tried this and found it didn't work.

Thanks again!

The hotstart lever above doesn't work for the decompression. LOL

The throw and/or leverage ratio of the little hot start lever isn't sufficient to operate the decompression. Once I had it hooked up it felt like I was going to break something when trying to operate. On the bright side my KX250 now has a nice clutch lever.

It really is a nice lever that seems to be built with good quality. Fortunatly it came with a second piece that eliminated the hotstart so I was able to use it on my other bike. Oh well.

I used a CRF450 clutch perch, and used the hot start lever for my decompression.

I use an ASV lever unbreakable lever/hotstart for my decompression lever on my XR600 and it works fine.
