I am sure with some more research on this site I could find my answers but thought I would just ask.
I just bought a 2003 WF450f. Big step up from the TTR230 I had.
For now there are just a few questions I have:
1. Is the knob on carb a choke or primer? I have never seen a choke you have to hold open like that. Seems like a trick to kick start and hold the choke open at the same time when the battery is dead. Am I missing something here?
2. The bike seems hard to start when it is warm. I was out over the weekend and several times after running for a while and turning it off. When I would go to restart it would take 5-10 tries to get it to start. Cracking the throttle a little would sometimes help. Once I had to crack the throttle and hold the choke open. This doesn't seem to make much sense when it is warm.
3. Is there a good location for free download of service manuals?
4. The chain seems awful loose. What is a good way to set or test the chain tension?
Thanks in advance
Any other suggestions of cheap and easy mods for this bike? I just use it for trail riding with the family. I am more concerned about dependability than squeezing more performance out of it. (For now that is)
