I just bought a 2003 CRF450R. From everything I read, the hot start lever is supposed to be the smaller lever above the clutch lever. My bike does not have anything by the clutch lever. It does have a anodized red lever on the throttle side. Is this the Hot Start lever? It does not 'lock' in place. Should I hold it over until it the bike starts, or just flip it over & let the lever return to it's 'neutral' position.
