Its only $66 on motosport. Not using it would not hurt the bike but you wont enjoy trying to start it. Especially when hot. Do yourself a favor and buy the part. Check ebay also. Might find a used one for really cheap.

Do yourself a favor, suck it up and buy the lever! The bikes can be hard enough to start and not having the decomp lever will make your ride much less enjoyable. Last thing you want to have to do is bump start your ride in the middle of the track/trail.

I assume that buying/installing the lever won't bust all your profit margin. Also, you'll surely get far more than the lever costs you in added sales price if you do it! Nobody wants to buy an eff'd up bike.

I buy and sell all the time. Been doing it forever. 

IDK what your experience is  with selling, or what riders are like in your part of the country. 

I find most potential buyers don't know how to fix bikes.

You really narrow your audience buy trying to sell something that isn't perfect.

Especially when it comes to starting. Most people are really impressed when a bike starts within a kick or two.

 

There aren't a lot of buyers to begin with so you have to better than the next guy selling

 

On the other hand I love it when I go to look at a bike to buy thats &%$#@!ed up like yours.

Because I know nobody's going to buy it, and if its something I want I can beat the shit out of the asking price.

Man, im 16 too and I work on my friends machines and some peoples from school for some $. Even if you're gonna sell it and never see the buyer or the bike again, do the right thing, fix it right. Some guy who doesnt know engines buys your bike for his sons birthday with an f'd up motor? That would sure ruin my birthday.

Don't give yourself a bad rep by doing the wrong thing. I find that you never know who you might encounter again later on.

it will be fine, try and ride it, once it breaks of the case rips apart at the kick lever someone will get a cheap crf on kijiji.
