Hey guys Ive had my wr426 for a couple of weeks now and I just gave it an oil change, cleaned the air filter and filled it up with premium unleaded (ive been running on ordinary unleaded). After I changed the oil I took it for a ride and all was good. The next morning I cleaned the filter and filled it with fuel and it refuses to start. Initially I though there must be too too much liquid in the filter element so I checked that but it still doesn't even look like starting. Any advice?
Not a bunch of info to go on but one possibility (and this is abstract) is that maybe the carb slipped off of the boot that links it to the head if the plug doesn't get youback up. Im no expert but I would always run premium if I were you given the high compression. Factory recommends 95 octane on my 05 I think, so premium is close cuttins.

I ended up picking up the tool from Yamaha, it's in my trail kit because it's small and light, it protrudes just past the top of the head and all you need is an adjustable or 12mm? to turn it.
Also, the top portion of the tool will work to remove your seat.
