Hey Thumper talk. I just joined the forums and have a couple questions about my 2002 Yamaha F 426. My bike will usually start first kick cold, but I'm wondering if anyone has any tips on starting it HOT. I can never seem to get it, even when using the hot start. I have also heard of getting a hot cam to fix my decompression issue. i hate having to sit there kicking away with my friends all on their new 250f's laughing and starting their bikes with the slightest kick. if anyone has any tips on starting this beast of a bike, or has any information about taking out the decompression, it would be greatly appreciated. also, if this has already been covered, it would be great if you could direct me to a couple previous threads.
