Probably needs some jetting work. it actually starts better when I kick it than e-start.

You dont need an auto clutch with the auto decompression feature on the WR450.
Not quite sure what you're getting at here. The clutch has nothing to do with the auto-decomp. I have an auto-clutch and use the auto-decomp every time I start the bike.

POSSIBLY THIS IS THE WORST BIKE EFM HAS EVER OWNED
I've owned many bikes over the years (all brands). My WR450 is the best bike I've ever ridden, period... Did you say the bike vibrates? Dude, I say you set your bike up with the right jets for your altitude and then you can say you're sorry for making such stupid claims to a bunch of WR owners in their forum.... give me a break........
PS, Do you always talk about yourself as a third person?

I was seriously considering buying a WR450. But if you guys are going to be my peer group, I think I'll wait for the CRF450X. I'd hate to have to ask any of you a question.
Look, this is a bike that everyone was anxiously awaiting it's arrival, but unfortunately it showed up with some reliability issues. Oh well, first year stuff (no biggie). Now all of you are so damn sensitive and defensive to anyone who has a problem it's rediculous.
Didn't anyone learn their lesson with TT member Claudacio? He's the guy who's WR450 blew up the first two times he had it out. You guys called him everything from a Troll to a piece of crap. You guys stopped just short of insulting his mother. Then the guy provided proof and you all ended up apologizing to him.
To guy from New Zealand who called him a Troll and to the guy who asked if he always refers to himself in the third person,
Do you guys have any idea who this guy is? EFM is the name of the company. They design and manufacture the "No Stall Auto Clutch" How many of you could build your own auto clutch.............Yeah, that's what I thought. So, my guess is he knows a little bit about bikes. Probably a lot more than most of us. Did he come on here and try to sell you on his product? NO, he just came on here to ask some questions and get some help.
To answer your next question. No, I don't work for them, I don't know any of them and I don't even have one of their clutches. I'm just tired of you guys slamming anyone who has a problem with the beloved WR.
Lighten up, all bike have issues.

As far as EFM, now that you mention it I am aware that they make some trick stuff.. Why would a company like EFM (who makes aftermarket products bikes) bash a certain bike? That doesn't make alot of sence to me.... Maybe he bought Cladios (s?) bike that has blown up twice... and just doesn't run right...
As far as the guy who's gonna buy a CRF450X, you're really not going to buy that bike because of TT are you?? That's just silly..... We're all just a little tired of all the ladies complaining about the best off road bike made...
Sorry, today I'm just a little tired of being nice to everyone....

It also takes a bit of common sense to sort minor problems on a bike you dont have to be a Mechanic or rocket scientist

Yes on my ride on Sunday I noticed that the shifter will stick down and I have to raise it with my toe. NO BIGGIE. Am I gonna give the bike away? I may be old and feeble but I ain't stupid. It is still a better bike than my WR400 was. I will keep it and put up with it's foibles and probably continue to love every minute..

You may have a defective battery or the charging system is not getting juice to the battery. I would get the shifter fixed and you should not have to give your bike away. Don't give up.
