'05 WR 450 starting motor problem
Posted July 13, 2007 - 04:30 AM
I have a problem with starting motor. My WR450F was parked for a year and when I want to start the engine, I have to use starting motor too much.
Due to excessive use of starting motor, it starts making lots noise a few weeks ago and at last, today, I cannot start the engine even with kick starter.
Do I need to change starting motor as assembly or just change brush set?
Please help me!

My original starter quit working after 3 years. During that time, I always used the starter, never really touched the kickstand. I tried replacing the brushes, resoldering the wires, etc, etc, but it didn't help. I think I just wore the poor thing out, especially from cold starts. Finally broke down and bought a new starter. Now I only use it for starting when the engine is hot. If you're properly jetted and the valves are in spec, it will fire up on the second or third kick.

I have heared that it is hard to start the WRs after falling. What is your experience?
After falling: it takes a bit longer time to start it again than normal start.
