I was reading in one of the dirt bike magazines that said my 2009 KX250F was bad about breaking the hot start connector. I ordered one and it sat on the shelf for 3 months. Then, I had to pull the carburetor off my bike I decided to inspect the hot start plunger and when I went to remove the connector... "snap". It broke it half. (Getting the broken one out is a pain.) I got this one off the shelf and installed it. Worked great and I've removed it with no problem.
