I read somewhere that a "Hotstart" hole was provided.... What is "hotstart" and what's needed to employ it? Are there any benefits / detriments to adding this "option"?


Leans the mixture for easier starting when the bike is laid over and flooded. Comes standard on kickstart models. If you have E start you dont need it. Even if you have kickstart you dont really need it. Just for ease of starting.

Do the kickers have a manual compression release?

yes,and the auto decomp.

Isn't there a difference between a hotstart and manual decompression?

Yes 2 different things. The kicker comes with both. Hotstart is down at the carb on the stock kicker. Decomp lever is on the bars.
