I run a 2014 WR450 with the GYTR ECU and other easy mods. I notice a few things about this bike that bug me. Here's my question: am I the only one this happens to?
When my technique is poor and I stall it (usually stuck in the roots on a hill) on the compression stroke, I can push the e-button until my thumb bleeds. All I'm doing is heating up the starter and wearing the battery down. Kick it, it starts in 3-5 kicks. Although, this weekend, I stalled it under compression and the starter wouldn't move it the engine--happened twice and was amazingly hard to kick that first kick.
When I'm lugging the bike around, it sounds like there's a chatter coming from the chain/sprocket area. When the RPM's come up, it goes away. It's when I'm in the low RPMs and revving up or lugging up a hill. Surely this can't be the timing chain after 1200 miles. I don't ride it that hard. I think I need to tighten the chain, but just did this about 250 miles ago.
SO, anyone else experience this? My CO is set at -8, which I guessing contributes. It originally made starting easier, but now seems to make no difference from stock setting of 0.
Thanks for your input!
About me: I don't ride like an a-hole. I tend to ride slow-mid speed and run technical stuff, not wide open throttle. More about clutch control (when I can remember how) rather than wheel spin.
