Went from perfect to dead...HELP!
Posted January 23, 2013 - 07:48 PM
I have a 2002 WR426 with the hotcam and rekluse clutch setup. I took it out on Sunday and it ran like a dream all day. I took it over to a friends house so he could compare it to his 450 and he turned the corner, gave it some gas (nothing terrible) and died. It sputtered to a stop and was dead. It was starting on the first kick every time, but now it doesn't even attempt to start. It has compression, spark, and I sprayed starting fluid down the pipe to make sure it wasn't a fuel problem...NOTHING! I changed out the spark plug just in case. No matter how many times kick it, it does not even come close to starting.
Any help would be greatly appreciated since I have exhausted all of the problems I could think of. Maybe there is some trick to a WR that I am unaware of. Like, maybe a secret "fixed" switch hidden somewhere.
Thank you very much for any help in advance.

Move onto the more involved things if you have not found the culprit yet.
You can check you valves,timing, pull and clean the carb.....
Take a methodical approach and you will find the problem.
