***??? new 2010 450 wont start?

alrighty, i know this has been gone thru already... however... just brought my brand new white 2010 450F home, and the bitch wont start after an hour of kicking in about 6 DEG. celcius. with the cold start knob pulled out. anybody have any ideas? thats all i did to start it, pull the knob and kicked er. is there any on/off switch? anything that might get it to fire up, cause man am i frustrated!:thumbsup:

got gas turned on? it takes a while to get used to them 450s just turn choke on kick it over easy once or twice then kick hard dont give it gas it will crank itself up.... good luck

Must have been a great PD done at the dealer before it went out the door....You need to confirm it is getting spark, there is no on/ off switch but your kill button could be faulty, disconnect it at the connectors in the harness and try starting.

Check the fuel supply for kinks or anything stopping fuel supply.

Remove the air filter and make sure nothing is blocking the intake.

If you have the GYTR controller check for any Diag codes. A foulty sensor could give you trouble too.

i have tried pulling the "choke" or circut thing open when starting with no throttle... no dice. thing is, buddy had it started in the store a couple hours before i got it home, i just dont get it!

well if your mechanically inclined i guess follow jase316's advice... make sure your getting spark and that the kill button isnt messed up if the guy had it running thats about all it could be... and that you got gas in it and its getting to the fuel injsection?

My 10' did the same thing. Let it sit over night, it's proby flooded to hell. Pull the cold start knob out find the compresion stroke give it one good kick to energize the system. Then find the compresion stroke again and kick. Mine's been fine ever since.

Mine was very hard to start when I got it home as well. I kicked and kicked and it didn't even try. Looked in the manual for some answers. If it is flooded, you do not have to sit on it over night. You hold the throttle wide open and slowly kick it 10 - 20 times. This is how you clean out the FI bike. Then try to start it with a slow kick and then a normal kick. This did the trick.

ZMoney has the correct procedure for a flooded bike. Mine was the same way when it was new and the 10 kicks wide open worked every time.

thx a lot for the help guys... funny thing is, i tried to start er the next morning, she went second kick. no idea what the issue was the nite before, but shes been running good ever since :lol: loving the feeling of the nibleness tho, good times!:thumbsup:
