Brand New '03 WR450F
Posted May 17, 2003 - 05:59 AM
Bike has only been out a couple of times with not even 100k's on clock.
Problem is engine running rough (backfires). I queried the dealer who said not to worry about it until at least 500k's. I thought fine and took bike out again today with result of dead bike after around twenty minutes. I changed plug and was up and running for around 10 minutes before next stop.
Can someone offer advice on what to do

I had used a brand new jerry can to refuel the bike.... note to self "flush any new petrol container before using it !!" ....
Bike has been re-tuned and I can't wait to let it rip this week-end.
Thanks for the advice. I stumbled upon TT while desperately looking for answers and can't believe what a fantastic source of information this is. I have been logging on every day since just to read what other people are experiencing.
It is even nice to see that a number of fellow Aussies are regular contributors.

$600US is big money, sounds like BS to me.
How did you find this thread, 2003?
