Motor died, big bore time

6 posts in this topic

At the end of my ride today my WR426 all of a sudden started to backfire and wouldn't idle. My guess is that the top end finally died. I have almost 5000 miles on the bike, does this sound right?? I'm thinking that is has something to do with the ignition timing, any thoughts??

It has been mostly dunes and wide open desert riden near the rev limiter. I ment 5k not 3k. Still I know that is not much.

Well, the image didnt help me in diagnosing your problem. But I'd be willing to bet you have either a fuel delivery or a spark problem, and I'd start with the spark area first!

well I think that I have found the problem with my bike. I kicked it the other day and no luck starting it. I put the choke on and it fired right up first kick. I let it idle for a couple seconds and then turned the choke off and it died. I believe that my idle circuit in the carb is plugged, something isn't right in the carb. What a relief, I was worried it was going to be much much worse. :naughty:
