I believe your talking about either a hot start lever - It acts the opposite of a choke. Whe teh bike is cold you need to be richer to start. When hot, you need to be a little more lean than optimum jet settings to start easy.

Some fours have a compression release too.

Yeah some of the older four strokes have a compression release. The compression release is a little black lever on its own perch.

Yeah it's a hot start they stopped using decompression levers in 2002

So its like the choke in the engine area that you pull out and in?But its just on the handle bars?
