05 WR450F E-start Fail regulator/rectifer?

Hey Guys,

Just got a 2005 wr450f and it runs great. I have a question, the bike starts fine with kick start but the electric start only works when the battery is on jumper leads. The battery is only 6 months old. I spoke to a bike mechanic who specialises in wr450f's and he said it is 90% most likely to be the regulator/rectifier.

I'm new to wr's does this sound right?

:busted:

thanks

You have to test the stator, reg/rect and the battery. It ia easy to ruin a bettery in six months. Never assume it is a part, else you just keep spending until you finally find out why. Get out the owners manual and run the tests.

cool thanks, will do

update:

noticed both the front indicator globes are blown out, i'm thinking that this might have happened because too much voltage is going to them.

Proving it is regulator/rectifier?

im having the same problem on my 03........help!
