Lights on - Parts Advice

Hi Newbie here.

 

I have a WR 450F 2004 which i've just bought.

 

I've a few questions, answers greatly received.

 

1) Is there anywhere i can find a parts list? (i'd like to service it and would like part numbers, e.g. spark plug, air filter, oil filter)

 

2) Is there a special starting procedure? i only tried briefly and couldn't start it, there isn't much petrol in it and its been stood so guessing its stale. I bought the bike from the owners dad and only spoke to the owner on the phone, he put a new battery on it and had started it. (Do i need to pull in the clutch for example)

 

3) Should the light come on as soon as i push the on / off button?

 

Any help welcome.

 

Regards

On my 04 the OEM lights only come on when the bike is running. And you do not need to pull the clutch in as long as the bike is in neutral, but it is a safe practice just in case. Search the thread on here for staring woes/tips

You will certainly want to drain the remaining fuel and start with a fresh tank.  With any luck the stale fuel didn't gum up your carb, requiring an overhaul.

REMOVE ALL GAS

REMOVE FLOAT BOWL COVER AND INSPECT FOR WHITE OR GREEN CORROSION. IF YOU SEEN ANY, PULL THE CARB AND CLEAN IT

EVEN IF YOU DON'T, REPLACE THE PILOT JET WITH A BRAND NEW ONE

YOU SHOULD RE-JET AND UN-CORK WHILE YOU ARE IN THERE.

NO, NOT TILL THE MOTOR IS RUNNING. THE LIGHTS RUN OFF THE AC SIDE OF THE STATOR.

HI all. Thanks very much for the replies.

 

I see an overhaul coming on. I planned on giving it a good service over the winter, looks like its worth delving a bit deeper.
