My brother rides an 08 KTM and for hotstart it's just a lever like my 02 WR 426 has for compression. I'm installing a new cam to get auto decompression, so I can lose the compression lever, but I thought it would be nice to somehow mod the bike to put a hot start lever there in it's place, instead of using the pull-out on the carb.

Is this possible? Anyone done it?

motion pro makes one that is a cable and button (like a choke). I've used it and it's pretty good. Alernately you could by a perch with integrated hotstart lever,a nd get a custom cable made to run down to teh hot start.
