Can you unhook the hot start on a 2008?

Recommended Posts

I just bought a basically brand new 2008, with the 09 engine in it before it ever left the showroom.

Anyway it has a hot start which Im not sure why cause no other FI bikes have one that I know of, or the newer rmz's dont either.

I have no issue with it starting while hot or even after falling over it starts back up pretty good and within a few kicks.

I thought about just leaving the cable hooked up and running it on the inside of frame?

But was wondering if there was an actual way to properly unhook it?

If not guess ILl just leave it there and get a perch with a hot start but would rather have a normal perch.

thanks

I have an 09' which is the same and I would leave it on. My bike fire to life after 3-5 kicks cold after sitting from weekend to weekend ( has to charge the system)

BUT when the bike is hot It starts with the Hot Start in one kick...without it can be very fickle and take alot of kicking and I jus give up and use the hot start and fires right over. Not sure why it is this way but it is.

If you read the mag reviews on the 08-09' models some of them noted it too.
