2011 Yamaha 450 WONT START! HELP!

I was going to mention that as the KX450 has had issues with braking fuel pumps on hard jump landings were the fuel pump/gas tank hit the head hard enough to break the fuel pump. Get your pump tested to see what pressure it's at.

yea thanks everyone and we checked the kill switch it was fine. But finally figured out the problem. We moved the gas tank back and heard a rattle so we emptied the fuel and my fuel pump broke inside and was in pieces in the tank.

kinda puts me off buying one of these new FI bikes !!

what does? one problem on one guys bike on the internet?

I was thinking the same thing...I've actually heard a lot of stories about broken fuel pumps.

How much is the fuel pump?

i got it luckily for 180 on ebay brand new a guy had a few oem parts for sale but the cost 350 from the dealer
