Tamer is the trailblazer in the starting device World.  We are the only company that offers a double button system called the Tamer Double Shot Holeshot Hookup.  Suspension robs power on the start, but you need your suspension for the rest of the race.  The Tamer Double Shot immobilizes  the suspension on the start and then gives that suspension back to you after the first turn.  Additionally, not all starting lines are the same and the innovative design of the Tamer Double Shot allows you options.  Whether it’s dry slick, sandy, tacky, or concrete, the Tamer Double Shot works! CONCRETE?  That’s right, the Tamer Double Shot works on concrete.  After all, drag racing uses this same concept and they start on concrete every time and that is why the upper button is perfect for all concrete starting areas.  Try that with any one position device, not happening.  Plus, the Tamer Holeshot Hookup is legal in all Amateur National stock (Limited) classes, so no excuses, every racer should use a starting device, so give yourself the advantage over your competition with the best, the Tamer Double Shot Holeshot Hookup.

If purchasing a system for any Honda 125cc or larger bike, you must also purchase the Fork Guard Bracket on bracket page.
WHY 2 BUTTONS?  The start has become as scientific as the race and is the most important part of the race.  This is where your most attention needs to be focused.  The double settings allows you a choice depending on the condition of the starting line.  Some are dry, some are concrete, some are rutty, some are really tacky some start the day tacky and end the day dry slick.  You need to adjust your front fork setting for the starting line condition and a single setting front starting device will not get the job done.  And now with the invent of the REAR STARTING DEVICE, the 2 button front system is even more important.
The Double Button comes complete with the mounting screws and aluminum drill template.  For mounting instructions, go to the support page and click on PRODUCT INSTRUCTIONS T1A, T1B and T1C
WHAT IS A STARTING DEVICE?  Sometimes called Holeshot Devices, a starting device is comprised
of two parts, a ring and a button system. The ring mounts on the inverted fork of a motorcycle and
the button system mounts on the plastic fork guard. When the forks are compressed and the ring
travels past the button, you push the button in and as the forks rebound, the ring catches the pin
in the button and holds the forks compressed.

When the rider hammers the throttle at the start or take-off, the bike tries to wheelie and cannot 
do so since the forks are compressed.

The starting device will stay attached and keep the forks compressed until the rider either hits the front brake, hits a braking bump or hits a jump causing the forks to compress and release the button, restoring your fork travel.
