The question : Mounting a hot-start cable from a 2003 YZ450F on my 02 YZ 426? Is it possible? The end of the cable looks very similar to the end of the plunger from the 426, but can't tell anything about diameter/length from the photos, that's why I need your help...

Here is the image from the cable

It may or may not fit the carb, but the angle at which the 450 cable exits the carb would have the cable hanging out quite a way to the side. Being as fragile as it is, the fitting/nut at the carb would never last.

Instead of engineering things on your own, buy the DRD hot start kit made for your bike.
