wr450 06 cutting out in water
Posted December 25, 2007 - 09:07 PM
Last couple of rides I have been on if I get water up to the top of the engine cases the bike dies.
Wont start again until dragged out of the water - sometimes takes a while to get started and runs a bit ragged for 30-60 seconds and then runs fine. Air filter is bone dry before and after this happens - all wiring is above case height. I'm confused.
Could it be sucking water into one of those carb breather hoses??

Two of the carb breathers had tees in them - the teed hoses went down to the back of the motor like all the others - how dumb is that?
I rerouted the teed ones into the airbox
I'll go an play in the water over the next couple of days and see if that fixes it.

Mines an 06 with the engine breather going into the bottom of the airbox (which caused me grief when the airbox was full of water).
I'll re-route the breather hoses up to the front of the tank - I don't want petrol on my air filter....
