Two WR450 observations
Posted February 21, 2003 - 03:40 PM
After rejetting the bike ran much better, the snorkel was out , I was using an old style vortip which worked well on my 426, but there was still some rumbling and minor sputter down low. I hadn’t done the gray wire mod yet since on my 426 it didn’t seem to do anything. But I decided to do it and see if it made any difference. OMG, it is running so smooth now I can’t believe it. I rewired it so I could but a switch in and switch it back and forth to see how much difference it made. I didn’t get time to put the switch in line yet. I plan to put it in and test it further, and if disconnecting the gray wire it was what made change in my bikes performance, I’d suggest you do it if you haven’t done it yet.

Inquiring minds want to know.

When stalled on a nasty sidehill, after 2 hours of flat-out racing, the happy-button will be wonderful!

Guys are you using the master off button when you are not driving you bikes? Maybe there is some electricity consumption that kills the battery...
The starter on mine turns the engine over just fine, I'm just saying that the kick starter can provide a quicker spin.
Perhaps it won't even be an issue when I have the jetting worked out, but for not I figure why put the wear on the starter motor when my leg works just fine? I want the e-start for trail use, not cold starts.
