YZ450F 03 Sparks driving me crazy

6 posts in this topic

Hello there,

I know there is countless treath about this issue all over the internet, but I still can't find one that fix my problem. I hope somoone out there may help me fix my issue.

 

I bought a Yz450f 03 that died last summer. The precedent owner didn't wanted to spend time on hit and chosed to sell i as it was.

 

So far, I changed the stator, the killswitch, the CDI unit, I tried the ignition coil of a Yfz450 that seems to be the same, I cleened the neutral switch and I just changed the harness. Still no luck. 

 

I get small yellowish spark when hitting the kill switch and kicking the bike. These are enough to give me some explosion but I can't start the bike this way. If I keep kicking the engine while pushing the kill switch I have a spark about 1 kick out of 2. 

 

If it may help, I before noticing the sparl problem, cleaned the carburetor and checked valve clearence. 

 

I'm sorry if I made any of this unclear, I only speak english as a second language. 

Thanks for your help.

Please explain why you would be pushing the kill switch while trying to start the bike.

It's not that I want to start the bike this way, but it is the only way I get fire.

I think the flywheel don't trigger the capacitor/pick up coil. Hitting the kill switch grounds it somehow and i get some weak waste spark.

What happens if you disconnect the kill switch?  Sounds to me as if you have a wiring fault somewhere.

Disconnecting the kill switch won't change it. I think I found the problem. I bought a proper multimeter and both stator are nuts.

Just a little update about this.

It was the flywheel. Seems like it wasn't triggering the pickup coil.

Funny enough, I rode it for about 15 minutes today and then broke the woodruff keeping the flywheel in place on the crankshaft!

Anyway, thanks for the help guys

      I'm finally getting the chance to go to the dunes in Oregon and cant decide weather I should run a 8 or 10 paddle tire on the back of my 81 YZ465 2stroke. Suggestions? Pros and cons for each? Thanks!

      Hey guys, 
      I understand that I'm going to sound like a complete rookie on this one. How do you tell if you have an aftermarket kit done to the front forks? I just recently pickup up an 05 yz450f and on one of the forks it has a (1) fast lap racing suspension sticker on 1 of the forks. The guy appeared to go alittle sticker happy with this thing before I got it. Runs good and the front end feels great but I've never had anything aftermarket suspension done to any of my other bikes. Any tell tale signs aside from the feel? Thanks.

      Hey all, let me get right to the point, basically for the past couple years I've had this bike, it hasn't been running right. It tends to start well, and has a decent amount of power for a 200+ lb kid on it, but once I attempt to hit the top of the power band, it tends to cough and sputter like it's choking. When I recently checked to carb to jet it, I realized ALL but one of the Jets are missing. I've checked the reed valves, they seem to be in great shape... However, today (it is a warm day) it ran great for a while, after topping off the oil and running with the choke half on, this bike also leaks oil, but I'm almost convinced that this is a jetting issue (being that they're missing)  at this point, but I've also never put a top end in this bike. Thanks for any help, I'd just like to get an opinion on what you guys think.   I know I'm all over the place btw, sorry for that
