Awesome!!

This thing is awesome. It was so easy to install and works great. I have it on a 14 kx450F and combined with this and the on board launch control, leaving in 2nd gear about half throttle and it does nothing but goes. Amazing product, this is a must have if you need help getting off the gate!!

2009 Yz450F

Bought this for my new 450. Comes with everything you need and super easy to install. Has the ability to adjust the height of the device depending how tall you are or how you have your bike set up. Haven't gotten to use it yet due to the weather being too cold to ride.

Installed it myself - no problem

Going to put it to use this weekend, so can't comment on performance yet. Installed easily on the YZ85.

Improve your starts!

We've been racing for 5 years and just started using a holeshot devise. The Works Connection start device was easy to install, easy to line up/adjust, and easy to use. I couldn't believe the difference in the drive out of the gate with improved weight distribution. I wish we would have installed one years ago. Don't wait, get one!

WC Pro Launch

The pro launch is a great product. It's a little difficult to install, but not too bad. The device itself is top notch like all WC products. Works great, quality and looks great!

Works Connection Pro Launch Start Device

I have 2 bikes. Both bikes have hole shot devices. The other one is junk compared to to the Works Connection Pro Launch Start Device.

Awesome product

Easy to install and use. Had a minor engagement issue once installed, but that was due to having NON-OEM fork guards on the bike. Contacted Works Connection about this issue and they were quick to respond with a easy solution. Kudos to both MotoSports and Works Connection.

Excellent device

I have used several different makes of launch devices, and this is the best by far. Instructions are easy to follow with good templates and special tools needed for installation. Very easy to operate while on the starting grid. I would suggest this as a top rated part to anyone looking to purchase a launch device.

Does a great job

Works great, only complaint is that for a women it is tricky to engage if you are petite.

Gotta buy this holeshot device!

the works connections pro launch starting device is just awesome. I race in CT and i have a 2012 crf 250, ive gotten all the holeshots in my class since ive added this to my bike worth every penny. easy to put on and the trigger is awesome compared to the button, i think.

Well built part

This is a very nice part that is well designed. The engagement is nice and positive. Installation was average for a holeshot device and it comes with tension straps to keep the bottom mounting holes from ripping out.

1 year 4 months ago
So I have a 2001 cr250 and it says that it dosnt fit but when I change the year to a 2002 it says it fits. Is there any diffrence in the the forks between the 2001 and 2002, and will it work. And if it does work will it mess up the graphics that i have on there.

A: You install the ring on your fork tube and the start trigger on the fork cover. Once installed, you then will compress the forks to lock the launch device which will disengage upon braking after the start. The Pro Launch Start Device is designed to help keep the front end down during acceleration after the start of your race.

A: Easy to understand directions are included. The round clamp goes around your RT fork tube. Removal of the fork tube is needed to install. The bracket with the switch mounts to the RT fork guard. Removal of the guard and some drilling are required. Once installed line up the notches and test the device.

A: Unfortunately the 2005 KX250f uses a different style fork than the current models. The companies making the holeshot devices are no longer producing them in the right configuration for the style of fork on your 2005 KX250f.
