This will also allow me to replace the back of my clutch perch with one that has a 10-mm threaded hole for a Real dual-sport mirror.
So, I'm thinking of cutting the cable just above the plastic carb fitting & covering with rtv.
Has anyone disabled their hot-start & removed the cable?

As for the comment of kickback, the 450 with auto decomp cam should not be kicking back.
If you have ever laid that guy over in the middle of the summer you would know that hot start is a keeper. However I would recommend buying an aftermarket hot start it works much better.
If you are insitent on removing it you will need to eliminate the "octopus" on the side of your carb. This involves buying a YZ air jet and vaccum capping all of the air inlet holes in the carb. Then put a vaccum cap on the air inlet hole on the side of the head and voila no hot start.

Do not fill that hole with RTV. That hot start has an unbeliveable vaccum on it. It will suck that RTV right into the motor. Valve seats dont like RTV on them.
