My 2013 WR450F gave me problems on the weekend. I stopped during a race with the bike dying under me whilst I was crossing a river. I assumed one of the plugs got wet, and preceded to remove the IMS tank and check all the plugs for water. All of them was dry and in good condition. Then checked for spark and found none put my spare plug in the lead and also no spark. Then a marshal helped me and whilst I was swinging the motor he touched the coil(mounted on the Enduro engineering rad braces) and got a huge shock we fiddled the wire and the bike started. I got going and lost so much time, but still did another 50 km to the finish.
I have removed the coil and the lead on the coil side is still attached and sealed, but when I fiddle with it the bike won't start or die when idling.
Q: can I cut the coil open to check the connection and then seal with heat shrink and silicone? or is this a big no no?
Also part number will a YZ450f FI coil work on my bike?
