Does anybody know if the 05 WR 450 will kick-start without a battery? I left the switch in the on position for about a week. Last night I went to turn it on and noticed it was left on. I pushed the switch a few times and the light would not come on. For the hell-of-it I tried the starter and nothing. Then I moved to the kick-starter and cranked away for about a half an hour trying different things thinking it might be flooded or starving for gas. Tried again about an hour or so later and still nothing. Today I will try checking the switches and the fuse to see if everything is operating correctly. And yes it has gas and the fuel line is turned on. Does any part of the bike require current from the battery to start? Any comments or suggestions?
