vestigial? or does this actually have some use?
You don't really need it (it's not an LC4). You have the Brembo clutch. It's master cyl lacks the mount point for the decomp. For some reason they switched from Magura to Brembo for the 2007. Fiche is wrong, it still shows Magura slave on engine page. Handlebar controls page is correct, shows Brembo. Just remember you *must* use Brake Fluid. If you insist you can install the brembo hot start master cyl cover (oem or hardparts) and hot start lever (pm me if you want part#s) or loop a long zip tie through the connection on the side of the motor.

I put a Magura on my 07 as the Brembo had way more pull effort compared to my old 05 (even with one of the shorter cLever levers). Now have some minor slippage when pulling away in 1st in soft stuff, not sure what's going on. I measured the push rod and it's same as the (incorrect) engine fiche page.
