WR450 Won't Start
Posted November 05, 2006 - 09:22 AM
Now, it won't start. The starter cranks it over, but it shows no signs of wanting to start.
The tank has plenty of gas and I've tried the petcock in both "on" and "res" positions.
Before I get hosed by a mechanic, does anyone have any ideas of what the problem might be?

You also may try the kickstarter if not allready. When mine is cold or has not been started for a while the E-start is useless. I only use it for hotstarts.
I agree. When it gets a little cooler out, the E-start will turn it over but not fast enough. So on my bike, if the E-start doesn't get it fired, it will usually go with one or two kicks.
That is the extent of my expertise, so I'll defer further troubleshooting to the experts.
Best of luck.

If the starter cranks it you atleast have power. If I was a betting man I would say your carb is dirty or the fuel is lacquered up in it. I would clean out the carb and check the plug.
This is the probable remedy.
