Oh I am so glad to here that did not want to have to buy all that and does anyone know anything about the boysen "quickstart" from what I understand it replaces your stock hot start? Others have called it a compression release but mine goes to my carb? So not completely sure what it's for

Whoever says that's a compression release, should not be taken seriously for any mechanical advice. What you took a picture of is the hot start. It should feed down to a spot right above where the choke goes. There will be a plastic thing that looks like a nut, that the cable goes into.

That's where the hot start goes to. It's really not going to harm anything sitting like that, but the day you need it you will regret the 20 bucks saved from not fixing it. It's not that hard to take it out.

It's a very common thing to happen. It would not take you long to fix it.

It's a Boyenson "Quick Shot", not quick start, and it replaces the stock accelerator pump cover.  It's rarely necessary.

 

All YZ400/426F models had a manual compression release in pretty much the same place as the stock hot start lever on YZ450's is, thus the confusion for some people.  All YZ450's were produced with automatic decompression, so the hot start control was moved from the side of the carb to the more convenient handlebar location.

Well, that appears to be an accelerator pump cover with a cable attached.  No idea on that, but I would bet that it's an overall waste of money.
