05 WR450F E-start Fail regulator/rectifer?
Posted September 29, 2009 - 05:17 PM
Just got a 2005 wr450f and it runs great. I have a question, the bike starts fine with kick start but the electric start only works when the battery is on jumper leads. The battery is only 6 months old. I spoke to a bike mechanic who specialises in wr450f's and he said it is 90% most likely to be the regulator/rectifier.
I'm new to wr's does this sound right?

noticed both the front indicator globes are blown out, i'm thinking that this might have happened because too much voltage is going to them.
Proving it is regulator/rectifier?
