I got a WR450 (06) a couple days ago and im so very excited...
Im lucky as the previous owner has done a lot of mods to it, i havent checked in the carb etc to see whats been done but this thing goes like a dog with a lit firecracker up its bottom!
I do however have one or two issues being a used machine,
I really suck at mechanics but normally can struggle and manage some basic things with a large amount of help... So please dont rip me if its something basic...
1) the cluch doesnt feel like it disengages properly when i pull the lever in, until i give it a quick blip with throttle. eg i can actually drive around slowly with the lever pulled in fully blip the throttle then id stop...
- i dont think its the cable as the cluch is very consistant on where it engages and is very smooth.
2) when i turn the headlight on while driving it will be fine for 5-10min then the bike will lose power and kinda just wants to idle... im guessing the previous owner didnt do a floating ground with the baja reg as i can only find the oem reg. i will most certanly do the baja reg just wanted to know if there were any other causes to this, as i thought that the bike should still have been driving fine when running but the batery would just be flat and i wouldnt be able to use the electric start?
I have read so many of the posts here on TT and just wanna say thanks to everyone whom helps here, ive learned so much and will continue to learn thanks to all you guys being AWSOME!
