Im sorry I started all this crap now. Having read some of the posts, its seems everybody has lost some perspective on the whole "getting a deal" angle. Science had a great point in a different thread about production costs. I made a point about "custom production" in which I have vast experience from my 13 year junket with Hughes Aircraft, in which, everything was custom production. If yamaha is truley on top of it, the 03 will have the hot start on the throttle side stock. IF so then you can just go to the dealer and retro fit the thing with cheap yamaha parts. If not, oh well.
