05 WR 450 Died Running
Posted November 23, 2010 - 09:24 AM
Ive only started it twice, and let it run for a short period of time.
The second time I started it (last night) it was idling fine for about 45 seconds. When i went to give it a few revs the headlight died (after market baja design 8" off-road racing light) as well as the taillight. Within a few seconds the engine died too.
When I went to kick it over (no easy button on it right now) the light would even flicker like it normally does, and it def didn't want to start...
Any ideas what the problem could be? Or where I should start? Any help would be really appreciated.

Wws the petrol left in the on position?

I left the gas on. But have since cleaned the carb.
I'm assuming its a electrical problem? Maybe the stator?

Help me get my bike back up and running for my 4 days off.
Give me something to be "thankful" for.

Im pretty sure its got a dead battery, but why would it start and then die?
I had no idea that it would run with no battery, but not with a dead battery?
I will disconnect it and see what happens. Thanks for the input.
Any other ideas would be very helpful, but I'll keep my fingers crossed its something easy like a dead battery.
