WR 450 F starting issues on E START
Posted January 29, 2012 - 09:01 AM
Any I deas what can be done to remedy it. ?
Normal jetting - mainjet , pilot and fuel screw does not improve the starting there must be something else to be done?
I have removed the wire in the cdi to give an imediate spark on the e button and still starting when hot is a hit and miss affair.inhe
Could it be an air jet in the carb?
When the bike stands for a minute or so it seems to help but imediate starts after shutdown is the problem

Somewhere in the list of things I just gave is your issue; personally if it's a hot start issue I'd try valves first, then carb as you may have an incorrect fuel screw setting. But if you read the Stickys on carb setup and follow those exactly, and have everythibg i listed above correct, your WR should fire whenever, however and wherever you need it too.
My 04 has been sitting all winter in an unheated garage in northern Wisconsin. Last weekend I put the battery back in to warm it up and change the oil and it fired off within 5 seconds of hitting the button. Just saying it can work correctly as I've owned mine for 2 1/2 years now and have yet to use the kick.

Valves have never needed adjustment and bike has over 3000 miles. I am using a little 2.5ah lithium ion battery which so weak it will not crank the motor if the piston is at top dead center.
