8 posts in this topic

Just got used 2000 WR. The bike won't start for me. It's been about 25 degrees here. Had no problems when it was warmer out.

This is exactly what I've been doing. It will sometimes backfire and sputter but won't start up. I know there was some carb work done to it. Could this be the culprit. The carburation seemed fine when it was warmer.

When it's very cold (25f), my 98 wr400 needs a few kicks with the choke OFF, then when it turns over a few times, I put the choke on and it starts right up. My bike NEVER starts with any throttle. It floods immediately. The friend that I bought it from taught me to leave my hand on the bar (off the throttle) when I start it.

Just my .02.

Didn't get an owners manual. Anyone wanna tell what plug I need to get so I don't have to freeze my a** off pulling the old one.

My yzf usally takes about 3or4 1/4throtle blips before I start is or it won't start. Even then it lights and dies and then I give it a couple more until it finally keeps running and warms up.
