Two lessons learned over the 4th

1 post in this topic

Found out the WR450 ignition switch can be destroyed hitting a tree. This is the electrical circuit card on the right side of the head behind the number plate. When this happen there are 4 wires that become exposed. Connect the two largest gage wires (red and black) to get the machine running again. This may be common knowlege but it was new to me.

Also the decompression plug may be blown out by a clogged breather hose. Mine blew for the second time and while replacing it I noticed the breather hose had a twist in it. Once that was fixed the plug has not moved.

Just a little FYI for anyone interested.
