Hello, I've been looking around for an automatic decompressor kit to
bolt on my YZF426 but was not able to locate a company producing one.
Does someone know why ? Is there an engineering reason (too much or too heavy
modifications needed), or a lack of interest or whatever ? All the trail
bikes and the new KTMs have one coupled to the kick starter. And it's reliable. It would
enable you to start the bike much faster in the middle of a race (if you have stalled).
So, do you have any ideas ?
Thanks in advance.

It may not be automatic but your thumb on the compression release lever works really good.
