If it stalls and i pull the clutch lever in and push the go button it tries to start but doesn't turn over and if I go to kick the thing the kickstarter is rock solid?
But if I keep on pushin' the button it will finally wind over OK.
Any ideas, local Yamaha dealer doesn't want to know about it unless the starter totals it's self.With the amount of trouble the starters have had worldwide they should recall '03 wr450's and fix the problem.If I have to spend $500.00 fixing the problem myself I'll put it toward a new Husky or KTM.

I think it is the auto decomp.I have the same trouble sometimes and rocking the bike back and forth abit always solves it. I don't think it's a problem with the bike.I think sometimes the cam stops and the auto decomp mechanism can't do it's job.
I think I got the same problem with the autodeco once with my '04 wr450.
